This map shows changes in where immigrants to Canada live, by census tract. A census tract is a geographic area home to between 2,500 and 8,000 people located in communities with more than 100,000 people.

Zoom in to see the how immigrant populations have changed since the 2011 census. Yellow represents negative growth, darker hues indicate increasing degrees of positive growth. Click on a coloured area to see numbers from the 2011 and 2016 census surveys and the percentage change. (Note: Areas that indicated zero immigrant residents in 2011 are not represented, since, as Statistics Canada puts it, "any change from 0 cannot be really measured as a percentage increase.")
