A new heat map by Estate Block utilizes data from the National Household Survey to determine where different immigrant ethnicities reside in Metro Vancouver and across the South Coast.

The map, built by Estate Block and shared across Reddit, highlights where 10 of the most populous groups of immigrants live, including those from the United Kingdom, India, China, Philippines, Hong Kong, South Korea, Iran, United States, Netherlands and Taiwan.

Immigrants in Metro Vancouver by majority in the neighbourhood shows Chinese make up the largest proportion of immigrants in most of Metro Vancouver, particularly the City of Vancouver, Burnaby and Richmond.

Vancouver’s Kitsilano, Point Grey, Fairview and False Creek areas are predominately made up of immigrants from the UK, as well as the West End, much of North Vancouver, West Vancouver, Delta and Langely.

Iranians tend to live in West Vancouver’s British Properties and Ambleside area, lower North Vancouver, Coal Harbour, the Central Business District and Downtown South.

Immigrants from the Philippines make up the majority in some of East Vancouver, East Richmond and North Surrey.

According to the 2011 Census, there are 159,200 people living in Metro Vancouver born in China, 111,265 born in India, 87,945 from Philippines, 72,230 from Hong Kong and 61,255 born in the United Kingdom.
