Thread: Whites a minority in Montreal?

  1. #1

    Question Whites a minority in Montreal?

    I was told by Ellie, a rental agent for La Cite that whites are a minority at La Cite and in Montreal. Is this correct?

    It's depend what she mean by white?
    -Are Italians, white?
    -English people?
    or just french Quebecois are white.
    If just Quebecois are white, the answer is:
    ''Yes, white are minority in Montreal Island''

    Question

    Maybe you misunderstood her, just in LaCite & not the city of Montreal? http://www.lacite.ca
    Anyone know the stats in Montreal as per race/nationality ratio?

    Western Europeans such as the native born Italians, French, Germans, British, etc. & their descendants here in Canada & the US but not the Afro-American or Natives/Indians.
    Do you now understand, Man911 ?


    Lawless,

    I think that there was a language barrier or misundeerstanding on this one.
    Ok, with this definiton of white, I could said they are majority in
    Montreal.

    Thanks for your input guys. This is the best darn website bar none.

    I can't find anything on the internet regarding demographics for montreal. Anybody have a clue?

    Man911 must be into some serious stuff that I would like to try! LOL

    I don't know how Bob Crane-"Mr Merb" can fit in blackface and singing "My Mammy"...What with all his pooning and reviewing.
    LOL He's going to wear out his bonemeter! HA
    Keep up the good work...as it is a noble calling to which we all aspire!

    Man911 is French trying his best on a mainly English board.

    What demographics are you looking for ? Most people here in Quebec are descendants of French settlers from France when North America was 1st settled but in the rest of Canada they are the descendants of the English settlers. The rest are mostly European immigrants or their descendants just like the US. Ask whatever questions you want & I'll do my best to answer.
    I agree with you ''Most people here in Quebec are descendants of French settlers from France''
    But, not for Montreal Island.
