Uruguayan Canadian

Uruguayan Canadians are Canadians of Uruguayan descent or Uruguayans who have emigrated to Canada. According to the 2011 Census there were 5,500 Canadians who claimed full or partial Uruguayan ancestry.


As of 2011 there were about 6,000 Uruguayans living in Canada.[1] During the 2010s some returned to their country of birth, but most went back to Canada, the country where they found more opportunities.[2]

They have their own institutions, such as the Uruguay-Canada Association,[3] the Consultative Councils in Quebec and Toronto[4] and the Canadian Soccer Club, which represents them in Montevideo.[5]
