Ethnic Diversity

Trends in the Town’s visible minority population largely mirror those of the immigrant population.  In 2006, only 725 residents were of a visible minority group, which was proportionately small compared to the Region and Province.  This visible minority population grew significantly (23.9%) between 2001 and 2006, compared to non-visible minority population growth, which only increased by 1.8% between 2001 and 2006. This growth was concentrated particularly among the Filipino, Japanese, and Southeast Asian populations.
