A look at Canada and India and their relationship, by the numbers

By The Associated Press

Tensions between Canada and India have escalated over the assassination of a Sikh independence advocate in June. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said his country was investigating credible allegations that Indian government agents were connected to the assassination, but India has rejected the allegations as absurd. Canada was home to about 1.4 million people of Indian ethnic or cultural origin, 3.7% of the country’s total population. More than 770,000 people in Canada reported their religion as Sikhism in the 2021 census. India has more than 1.4 billion people and about 1.7% are Sikh.
