1.2 mln "Ukrainian Canadians" -- 2006 Census data

Preliminary numbers are now available from the 2006 Census of Canada. Some relevant figures for the Ukrainian community are as follows.

1,209,085 Canadians identified themselves as being of Ukrainian or partial Ukrainian heritage, compared to 1,071,060 in 2001. Of these respondents, 300,590 (compared to 326,200 in 2001) claimed to be single origin Ukrainian Canadians, and 908,495 claimed to be multiple origin (744,860 was the total in 2001).

The number of single origin Ukrainians has declined as mixed marriages continue to transform the make-up of Canadian society as a whole, according to my source.

The number of Ukrainians by province, listed in descending order, with the 2001 figures given brackets, is as follows:

Ontario, 336,355 (290,925)
Alberta, 332,180 (285,725)
British Columbia, 197,265 (178,885)
Manitoba, 167,175 (157,660)
Saskatchewan, 129,265 (121,740)
Quebec, 31,855 (24,030)
Atlantic Provinces, 11,675 (9,175)

In terms of cities,

Edmonton, 144,620
Toronto, 122,510
Winnipeg, 110,335
Vancouver, 81,725
Calgary, 76,240
Saskatoon, 38,825
Hamilton, 27,080
Montreal, 26,150
Regina, 25,725
Ottawa-Gatineau, 21,520
St. Catharines, 20,990
Thunder Bay, 17,620
Victoria, 15,020
Kelowna, 13,425
Oshawa, 12,555
London, 10,765
Kitchener, 10,425
Windsor, 9,725
Greater Sudbury, 7,585
Halifax, 4,030.

The urban sprawl known as the Greater Toronto Area includes Mississauga with 18,960, Oakville 6,430, Burlington 6,990, and Vaughn 5,005 for GTA total of nearly 160,000, some 26,000 more than in Edmonton.

Так дивився на фото і згадалася схожа фотографія на уродинній забаві у Мюнхені під відкритим небом напровесні 1992 року(це коли дарували "золотий" СD Pink Floyd).
