An Argentine Canadian is a Canadian citizen of Argentine descent or an Argentina-born person who resides in Canada. The Canadian Immigration Act of 1952 resulted in an increased number of skilled and educated Argentine immigrants to Canada.[2] The majority were fleeing the economic decline and political turmoil following the Revolución Libertadora.[2] An average of 400 Argentines immigrated to Canada annually from 1964 to 1972. Beginning in 1973, increased instability, terrorism and high inflation in Argentina created another wave of immigration to Canada. The rate of immigration increased to more than 1000 persons annually during the mid-1970s.[2] The influx lasted until 1983, coinciding with the progress of Argentine democracy.[2]

The highest concentrations of Argentine Canadians are in Toronto, Ontario and Montreal, Quebec.[2]
