Egyptian Diaspora in Canada
Canada is an important destination for Egyptians seeking opportunities to study, work or migrate. According to some unofficial estimates, there are about 250 thousand Egyptians, or Canadians of Egyptian origin, residing in Canada. Most members of this community attained distinguished positions in the educational and professional realms. The community includes a large number of professors working in Canada’s most prestigious universities and think-tanks, as well as a number of prominent entrepreneurs engaged in a myriad of business ventures. This Egyptian community in Canada is viewed as a pillar of the bilateral relations, and it serves as a perpetual cultural bridge between the peoples of both countries.
