Chinese Canadians
 

Chinese Canadians are Canadians of Chinese descent. They constitute the second-largest visible minority group in Canada, after South Asian Canadians. Canada contains one of the largest populations of overseas Chinese, and has the second largest population of Chinese people outside of Asia, after the United States.

People of Chinese descent, including mixed Chinese and other ethnic origin, make up about four percent of the Canadian population, or about 1.3 million people. Most of them are concentrated within the provinces of British Columbia and Ontario. The five metropolitan areas with the largest Chinese Canadian populations are the Greater Toronto Area (537,060), Metro Vancouver (402,000), Greater Montreal (83,000), Calgary Region (75,410), and the Edmonton Capital Region (53,670).

Dominant languages include Cantonese, Mandarin, Canadian English, Quebec French, Hokkien, Hakka and Teochew, while religions practiced are Buddhism,  Taoism,  Confucianism and  Christianity. Prominent members of this group who have made their marks on the Canadian landscape include Patrick Chan, Olivia Chow, John Yap,  Norman Kwong, David Lam, Linda Chung , Angela Tong, Jim Chu and Melissa O'Neil
