Just last year, Canada welcomed over 400,000 newcomers into the country – marking a record high for yearly immigration rates. Newcomer immigration is only set to grow from there, and Canada is set to become more diverse than ever before. 

For brands and advertisers, this growth in Canada’s multicultural community is an exciting opportunity to connect with an ever-growing consumer base – but no opportunity comes without its challenges. Understanding newcomers’ unique needs and wants is key to creating content that resonates and connects meaningfully with these communities.  

Using Vividata’s latest SCC and SCC/Multicultural databases, this report delves into the key demographics, consumer voices, and media behaviours of these diverse communities to help uncover what excites and motivates new Canadians.
