White Canadians going extinct

Visible minorities increasing in Canada

Les Whittington

OTTAWA—By 2031, nearly 40 per cent of children under the age of one in Canada will belong to a visible minority group, Statistics Canada projects.

This is an increase from 22 per cent only six years ago — a trend that is similar to an increase in foreign-born and visible minorities in the United States.

The U.S. Census Bureau on Thursday spotlighted a landmark demographic shift, reporting that for the first time more than half of children being born in the United States belonged to ethnic or racial minorities.

Assessing similar trends in Canada, StatsCan projects that the visible minority population in this country will continue to be bolstered by sustained immigration and slightly higher fertility rates in the next 15 years or so.

By 2031, Canada could be home to 14.4 million people belonging to a visible minority group, more than double the 5.3 million reported in 2006. The rest of the population, in contrast, is projected to increase by less than 12 per cent during that period, the federal statistical agency projects.

The South Asian population, which would still be the largest visible minority group in 2031, could more than double from roughly 1.3 million in 2006 to 4.1 million by then. The Chinese population is projected to grow from 1.3 million to 3 million, StatsCan estimated.

Also, diversity will grow among the Canadian-born population, the agency said. By 2031, 47 per cent of second-generation Canadians will belong to a visible minority group, nearly double the proportion of 24 per cent in 2006. “Second generation” refers to those who are Canadian-born and have at least one parent born outside Canada.

In Toronto and its surrounding municipalities, visible minorities could more than double in the next two decades, making up 63 per cent of the area’s total population by 2031.

StatsCan projects that the number of visible minorities in the Toronto area could grow from 2.3 million in 2006 to 5.6 million in 2031. The rest of the area’s population is projected to rise by only 8 per cent.

For this study, the agency used the census metropolitan area of Toronto, which reaches from Oshawa in the east to Burlington in the west and Barrie in the north.

The projections, StatsCan’s most recent demographic estimates, were produced last year. On May 29, the agency will release new data on Canadians’ age and sex based on the 2011 census.

    This writer’s math skills appear to be lacking when he writes: “By 2031, Canada could be home to 14.4 million people belonging to a visible minority group, more than DOUBLE the 5.3 million reported in 2006.

    A quick calculation reveals that Canada’s NON-whites are expected, to not just more than double, but almost TRIPLE at a 271% increase. Then to further obfuscate simple facts, he continues with “The rest of the population…“.

    And just who might those Canadians be?? Typical leftist Toronto Star conditioning where he couldn’t up bring himself to write that dastardly “racist” word… WHITE.

    Come on, Les, don’t be ashamed… just say “White” three times every morning until it begins to roll off your tongue.

    The South Asian population, which would still be the largest visible minority group in 2031, could more than DOUBLE from roughly 1.3 million in 2006 to 4.1 million by then.

    Looking at these projected figures, it’s obvious the South Asian population is going to more than TRIPLE within this time frame at over 300%.

    The rest of the area’s population is projected to rise by only 8 per cent.

    There he goes again! Those invisible White people just don’t seem to be worthy of ANY mention!!

    Much like the USA, it’s probably already happening or will happen sooner – because a lot of these surveys include people who are “white” that are not really “Caucasian” by race (such as Eastern Europeans, Jewish people, mixed race). “Visible minorities” is just an outdated term, of course being used to mean anyone who’s skin isn’t light, but this term will likely fall out of favour in the future as it is a very useless term just like the word “white.” Race has been blurred by the leftists. Race is about more than skin colour. Racially speaking, Indians are more Caucasian and closer to Western European races than the Slavics of East Europe and Russia. Which belongs to the closer family: a strawberry and a red apple, or a red apple and a green apple? Will this website who claims to be persecuted by political correctness and lack of free speech print this? I doubt it, but let’s hope the vast majority of Canadians realize that.

      Faust, are you some sort of pseudo-Christoph Meiners fan?
      He said that Germans and Tartars are “Caucasian” while Jews and Slavs are not because their faces are “ugly”.
      If this is a scientific work… and and you are of the admirers, wow…
      He also stated that Caucasians had the “whitest, most blooming and most delicate skin” (“Gender and Germanness: cultural productions of nation”, Magda Mueller, Patricia Herminghouse, 1998, p. 28.) Europeans with darker skin he considered to be “dirty whites”, admixed with Mongolian. (Wikipedia)
      If we talk about the most blooming skin, that must be Japanese, Korean and some Chinese women’s skin.
      It is extremely smooth, silky, hairless.
      So, would you call them “Caucasian”?
      Physical anthropology gives you three points to follow when it comes to identifiying a Caucasoid skull.
      Linguistically speaking, there is another classification of the Caucasoid peoples.
      Carleton S. Coon, based on shull type, sees India as “the easternmost outpost of the Caucasian racial region”.
      Coon’s five basic races (Caucasoid, Mongoloid, Australoid, Negroid, Capoid) is widely used by researchers and non-researcehrs.
      You seem to have a beef with Eastern Europeans, as you claim that they are not Caucasian.
      Are they Mongoloid, Australoid, Negroid or Capoid? Or do you have a special racial category for them (we should also make sure that we define Eastern Europe properly, shouldn’t we?)?
      Perhaps you should make a list of all those you consider Caucasian.

      the new DNA study shows that Indians are more closer to southern russians and slavic races

      • 8-)

        native Indians or east indian? the world will be better when all the white mutts are finished then Russians and Ukrainians can come and stay with the east Indians in north America.that would be the best.

    I moved to Canada in 1979. I liked living in an overwhelming white country. Now, not so much. I prefer being with my own kind, and when that becomes impossible here, I shall “go back where my people came from” in Europe, where I shall live out my golden years without having to see alien faces and hear outlandish languages. Racist? Guilty as charged.

      Well, I doubt that if you go back to Europe you will find a better place than Canada.
      Alien faces and languages are almost everywhere. Good luck finding a genuine old Europe in the Western part of the continent.
      Also, I think that it’s ridiculous to call yourself “racist” only because you prefer your own people and language. By doing so you put a negative light on a white person’s right to prefer their own people.
      Many blacks, Asians, Arabs prefer the company of their own people, but they are intelligent enough to call this “normal’, not “racist”.
      You are simply giving ammunition to those retarded who call everything and everybody “racist”.
      Personally, I detest genuine racists.

        you are a racist now go back to Europe.
