British Columbia Language Demographics: Why Multilingual Communications Are Important
Population: 4,510,858 (estimate @ 2010)
Languages Spoken: English (official)
Though just 1.8% refer to their origins as being "British", a majority 57.3% of the population of British Columbia claim their ethnic origin as being from one of the British nations (England, Scotland or Wales). Another 15.2% refer to their ethnicity as "Irish", though not distinguishing between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
Of the provinces, British Columbia had the highest proportion of visible minorities, representing 24.8% of its population. Asians are by far the largest visible minority demographic, with many of the Lower Mainland's large cities having sizable Chinese, South Asian, Japanese, Filipino, and Korean communities.
Also present in large numbers relative to other regions of Canada (except Toronto), and ever since the province was first settled (unlike Toronto), are many European ethnicities of the first and second generation, notably Germans, Scandinavians, Yugoslavs and Italians. Third-generation Europeans are generally of mixed lineage, and traditionally intermarried with other ethnic groups more than in any other Canadian province. First-generation Britons remain a strong component of local society despite limitations on immigration from Britain since the ending of special status for British subjects in the 1960s.
Of the 4,113,847 population counted by the 2006 census, 4,074,385 people completed the section about language. Of these 4,022,045 gave singular responses to the question regarding mother tongue. The languages most commonly reported were the following:
English (71.5%); Chinese languages (8.5%); Punjabi (4.0%); German (2.2%); French (1.4%); Tagalog (Filipino) (1.3%); Korean (1.2%); Spanish (0.9%); Persian (0.7%); Italian (0.7%); Dutch (0.7%); Vietnamese (0.7%); Hindi (0.6%); Japanese (0.5%); Russian (0.5%); Polish (0.4%); Portuguese (0.4%); Ukrainian (0.3%); Hungarian (0.3%); Croatian (0.2%); Arabic (0.2%); Urdu (0.2%); Danish (0.2%); Greek (0.2%); Gujarati (0.2%); Romanian (0.2%); Serbian (0.2%); Czech (0.1%); Finnish (0.1%); Athabaskan languages (0.1%); Slovak (0.1%); Norwegian (0.1%); Tamil (0.1%); Salish languages (0.1%); Ilocano (0.1%); Malay (0.1%); Bisayan languages (0.1%); Swedish (0.1%); Turkish (0.1%); and, Tsimshianic languages (0.1%).
