English Canadians, or Anglophone-Canadians, refers to either Canadians of English ethnic origin and heritage, or to English-speaking or Anglophone Canadians of any ethnic origin.

In 2021, the number of Canadians who speak English as their first official language was 27.6 million citizens. As many may be aware, Canada’s population broke a 40 million person threshold in mid-2023.

According to Statistics Canada, in 2021 there were 9 million citizens who spoke a mother tongue other than English or French. This stands as a record high since the census was founded in 1901.
