Diverse People Groups In Toronto

Diverse People Groups In Toronto

Did you know that the largest population of Tibetans in North America can be found right here in the city of Toronto? Or that you can find one of the largest Tamil speaking population outside of India also in Toronto? The global movement of people is changing the ethnic, cultural and religious make-up of Toronto, making it one of the most multicultural cities in the world!

Toronto is home to an immense number of diverse people groups and we want to celebrate this diversity by highlighting some of these culturally diverse groups found in this great city. Utilizing 2006 census data from the City of Toronto website, we mapped differing City of Toronto neighbourhoods and wards, randomly choosing 11 diverse people groups that are part of our beautiful city. Below you will find a map showcasing specific people groups (according to their spoken language) and the neighbourhood where the largest population of these people groups can be found in Toronto. Furthermore, click here to view our cultural communities page!

If you would like to conduct further research, you can find the census data at Neighbourhood Profiles, or you may contact us. We would be happy to help with your specific neighbourhood mapping!

We have selected some diverse cultural groups and shown where they are located in Toronto. We encourage churches to explore the diverse people groups in Toronto. We invite you to pray for the nations that God has brought to our doorstep. (Pray for nations though Prayercast).

P4N Logo

Prayer for the Nations (P4N) is a collaboration between four Canadian ministry organizations (see below).
Focusing initially on the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), and the Golden Horseshoe region of Southern Ontario, we will gradually expand in late 2021 and beyond to include gateway regions such as  Montreal, Metro Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Ottawa-Gatineau, Winnipeg, Quebec City, and Halifax.

From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands. God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us. — Acts 17:26-27 (NIV)

Vision Statement
Our vision is to mobilize Canadian followers of Jesus to reach the ends of the earth by praying for, serving, evangelizing, and discipling new Canadians in Canadian gateway cities, so that they naturally reach back to the ends of the earth through their existing networks and connections in their lands of origin.
