Twenty percent of people living in Canada are foreign born. "The 2006 census counted more than 6m foreign-born people out of Canada’s population of 31.2m, the highest ratio of immigrants since the 1930s.
The immigrant population grew four times as fast as the Canadian-born population between 2001-2006.
Nearly 60% of the newcomers came from Asia and the Middle East."

I think the "town" of Markham -- really a major suburb north of Toronto -- is one of the largest Asian population centers in North America. There are shopping centers there where every store sign is in Chinese and the presence of English is minimal.
