Mexican Canadians (French: Canadiens mexicains; Spanish: Mexicano Canadienses) are Canadians of Mexican ancestry. Per the National Household Survey in 2011, 96,055 Canadians (0.3% of the country's population) indicated that they were of full or partial Mexican ancestry. The Mexican ancestry population in Canada is quite small despite Canada's proximity to Mexico and especially when compared to the United States where as of July 2011 there were 33,558,000 Mexican Americans comprising 10.8% of the population (see Mexican American).
Mexican Canadians trace their ancestry to Mexico, a country located in North America, bounded north from the United States; and many different European countries, especially Spain, which was its colonial ruler for over three centuries.
