Where Do the Immigrants Settle Down?

A recent study shows that new low-income immigrants go to large cities and of course face many problems there. As you see in the bar chart above, Vancouver and Toronto, the largest and the 2nd largest Canadian cities, respectively, have more low-income immigrant population. Windsor in Ontario is a black community, mostly and Calgary hosts Afghans, Kurds, Indians and Pakistanis. Montreal is a base for African-French people, like Moroccans. Iranians mostly go to Toronto and Vancouver. It’s being downgraded for them going to any other city with a population less than 3,000,000! They love traffic, pollution, noise, small expensive apartments and high living expenses while mostly having no good job or career, unfortunately, but honestly some of them are really successful in Canada. I'll name some of them later.
