For Asians, the gender pattern goes in the opposite direction: Asian women are much more likely than Asian men to marry someone of a different race.
The main concentration of the Indo-Canadian population is found in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia (which includes Greater Vancouver) and the Greater Toronto Area, however there are growing communities in Calgary, Edmonton, Hamilton, and Montreal.
Indo-Canadians are significantly more likely than the Canadian average to have a university degree, and most Indians in Canada are socio-economically middle class and affluent.
Fully a quarter of black men who got married in 2013 married someone who was not black.
Only 12% of black women married outside of their race.
This is partially because historically the Americas were mistaken by Columbus as India and Native Americans were mistaken by Columbus for Indians and later as West Indians.
Therefore, there is no need to distinguish between West and East Indians, because the term "Indian" only refers to a single ethnic group.In 2013, a record-high 12% of newlyweds married someone of a different race, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of census data.(This share does not take into account the “interethnic” marriages between Hispanics and non-Hispanics, which we covered in an earlier report on intermarriage.) Looking beyond newlyweds, 6.3% of all marriages were between spouses of different races in 2013, up from less than 1% in 1970.Indo-Canadians or Indian Canadians are Canadian citizens whose heritage is fully or partially South Asian (including Indian and other origins), children of persons who immigrated from India and/or South Asia to Canada, or persons of Indian/South Asian origin who have Canadian citizenship.The terms East Indian and South Asian are sometimes used to distinguish people of ancestral origin from India in order to avoid confusion with the First Nations of Canada.Lascars aboard Portuguese, Spanish and possibly French ships may have also arrived on the coasts of Labrador and Nova Scotia.
