Great News for Church Planters! - Visible minorities in GTA could double by 2031: StatsCan - thestar.com

Visible minorities in GTA could double by 2031:

"Visible minorities in Toronto and its surrounding municipalities could more than double in the next 20 years, making up 63 per cent of the area’s total population by 2031, according to a study by Statistics Canada published Tuesday.

The federal agency projects the number of visible minorities in the area to grow from 2.3 million in 2006 to 5.6 million in 2031. The rest of the area’s population is expected to increase by only 8 per cent.

For the purposes of the study, StatsCan uses the census metropolitan area (CMA) of Toronto, which stretches from Oshawa in the east to Burlington in the west and Barrie in the north. It’s similar, though not identical, to the Greater Toronto Area."
