Default How many people from India\Pakistan in Quebec

Hi All
I have heard that the province of Quebec is the best province when it
comes to quality of life and benefits to the residents. However, being
a french province one might face racism specially if they are from the
countries of India or Pakistan or Bangladesh(Basically Indo Pak
subcontinent).

My question is, is there some website where we can find out how many
people have migrated from India/pakistan or bangladesh and are
residing in the province of Quebec.

Secondly, is it true that there is a lot of racism and favouritism in
Quebec against the newly migrated immigrants.

I have seen racism in the US and the UK but I have not seen it here in Canada. I lived in Ontario, BC and Quebec and they have all different cultures and way of life.

In the third world, you face discrimination between the poor and the rich and those who are in the those who are powerfull and just an ordinary citizen.

Ottawa ON and Gatineau QC is just bordered by a river and by just crossing it feels like you are in a different country. The dialect changes and the street sign are in french with no english translation.

It is wrong to think about racism when you are migrating to another place and instead you have to think about how will you make good and prosperous life when you migrate. The benefits that the province will give you are not actually free because you pay them with your tax. Nothing is free in this world.

If you want to settle in Quebec, I would suggest Montreal. I was born in and lived in Montreal for the first 30 yrs of my life (I am now 36) and to my experience, racism is not an issue in Montreal. Montreal is very multi-ethnic, with two main cultures (English and French). If there are any issues, they are usually language related. Most of the English speaking population in Montreal lives in the west part of the city. There are some exceptions (ex. English speaking residents of Italian background tend to live in the North-East part of the city).

Although Montreal has the advantage of being a multi-ethnic and dual-cultured city, one of the drawbacks is the social climate. Quebec in particular is a very socialist province. Taxes are very high to pay for people on welfare, assistance programs for folks who don't want to work, medicare ...etc). I personaly tend to prefer the southern U.S. conservative lifestyle where taxes are low.
