With a growing Chinese population in Canada, it is increasingly important for marketers to meaningfully engage Chinese-Canadians across media channels. As the largest ethnic market in Canada, and one of the most affluent, Chinese-Canadians spend an estimated $61 billion a year in consumer goods and services.
