Interracial dating in canada
You being the opposite, a Canadian living in the States, do you have the same observation? I hear what you’re saying but the research doesn’t seem to support your thesis.According to a 2010 Pew research, 8 percent of US marriages are interracial, while Statistics Canada reports that about 4 percent of Canadian marriages are interracial.Statistics Canada released a report Tuesday showing 9.6 per cent of Metro Vancouver’s couples are made up of partners from different ethnic backgrounds.That means 51,375 couples out of 536,000 in Metro Vancouver are in mixed unions.
When comparing the proportion of all visible minorities who take part in mixed unions, this new Statistics Canada data reveals that only 12 per cent of visible minorities in Metro Vancouver are in mixed unions. But in Victoria, which has only 38,000 visible minority members, the data shows a whopping 37 per cent of them are in mixed unions.
Tina Chui, a senior immigration researcher for Statistics Canada, said a key reason Metro Vancouver has the highest ratio of couples in mixed unions is the city’s relatively strong ethnic Japanese population.
Metro Vancouver has one third of the country’s ethnic Japanese, at 28,000.
