Third-generation locals are hard to find

Metro Vancouver’s population is so mobile that third-generation locals are hard to find, according to a Vancouver Sun article. The author cited UBC geographer Daniel Hiebert, who pointed to Statistics Canada’s forecast that by 2031 only one-quarter of Metro’s population will be third-generation Canadian.

“There is no European city with anything like this demographic structure, nor will there be in 2031,” Hiebert said.
