Since the 1960s Canada experienced a wave of immigration from the Caribbean islands. According to a 1996 Statistics Canada survey, the top 10 countries from which these people emigrated were:
- Trinidad and Tobago
- St. Vincent and the Grenadines
- Dominican Republic
- St. Kitts and Nevis
- St. Lucia
The movement of people is reciprocated. Many Canadians choose to vacation in these hotspots during the winter.
