In today's Vancouver Sun there was a full-page article on the most recent immigrants to Metro Vancouver during the 2001 - 2006 period according to Statistics Canada.*
I found it interesting that the 6th and 7th place countries of origin had an exact tie of 6,385 immigrants from each. The countries: The United States and Iran.
There's a story there somewhere . . . .
