According to the 2016 Census, 11,845 Canadians claimed that they had full or partial Breton ancestry. However, the Amicale des Parents d’Émigrés d’Amérique du Nord (Association of Relatives of Emigrants to North America), an organisation headquartered in Gourin, Brittany, has estimated that around 45,000 Bretons immigrated to Canada between the years of 1870 and 1980 and that 8,000 Breton Canadians live or work in the Montreal area.
