From the Paper:"The statistics being studied were the general demographic statistics from the 2006 census. These statistics provide insight into the ethnic diversity of Canada. There were a number of significant statistics that were noted. The statistics on languages spoken at home reveal a number of different things. Among them is the substantial amount of diversity among First Nations, but also the lack of native language speakers in that group, with the largest being Cree at 47,190 speakers but most being only a few hundred or thousand speakers. Native speakers of other languages are also varied. There are sixteen languages with at least 100,000 people who speak the language at home. The list of languages spoken at least somewhat at home reveals even more about the diversity of the country with over 10,000 speakers of dozens of different languages, some quite obscure.
"There are also interesting statistics with respect to the source of immigrants. The figures illustrate that immigrants come from all over the world, with a fairly even distribution from a number of key regions. The figures with respect to ethnicity are also interesting - First Nations are the largest visible minority group when taken as a whole and there are some very large other groups as well."
