TORONTO STAR
Toronto is now majority visible minority. What about your neighborhood?

More than half of Torontonians — 51.5 per cent — identify as visible minorities, recently released data from Canada’s 2016 census shows.

The data shows a marked difference in diversity between the multicultural heartland of the Greater Toronto Area and the rest of the country.

Twenty-nine per cent of Ontarians and 22 per cent of Canadians overall reported being visible minorities, versus a thin majority in the City of Toronto.

The numbers also varied in the Big Smoke. The higher proportions of diversity — more than 50 per cent — were clumped in the inner suburbs of Scarborough, North York and Etobicoke.
