Abstract: 

Diverse and vigorous expression of ethnicity has become a strikingfeature of contemporary urban Canada. The older heavy dominance of Frenchand English speech and ways is challenged now by new pluralities from elsewherethan the founding Nations. Vancouver, as the "third metropolis,"displays the heightened multi-ethnic character of the late twentieth centuryCanadian large city in its full intensity and complexity, which are thesubject of this essay.
