Vancouver's is Canada's eighth largest city and the most densely populated. Although traditionally the dominant ethnic groups have been the English, Scottish and Irish, today other origins contribute to the city's cultural mix. The city counts now neighborhoods with distinct chinese, punjabi, italian or greek personalities. 52% of the population don't speak English as a first language, and almost one third of the population are of Chinese descent!
