Most Multicultural Countries In the World

The Top Ten
1 Australia Australia, officially the Commonwealth of Australia, is a sovereign country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands. With an area of 7,617,930 square kilometres (2,941,300 sq mi), Australia is the largest country by area in Oceania and the world's sixth-largest country. Australia is the oldest, flattest, and driest inhabited continent, with the least fertile soils. It is a megadiverse country, and its size gives it a wide variety of landscapes and climates, with deserts in the centre, tropical rainforests in the north-east, and mountain ranges in the south-east.

Australians come from every race and every culture. 29.9% are 'Australian' while everyone else is from diverse backgrounds. The Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islanders have been in Australia for many years. A lot of the people are non white and some are. Australia is indeed ought to be the most multicultural country in the world.

I believe the reason India is counted is unfair as many of the groups originate from that area, whereas Australia is wholly new groups.

I grew up in Australia as an Immigrant and was granted naturalization of becoming a citizen. But I lived in a quite diverse suburb in Brisbane with a majority of my friends who are Chinese, Indian and Sri Lankan. Almost every one of my friend is also from New Zealand and South Africa. Basically I think Australia has the highest migration rates in the world in terms of Multicultural diversity

I've Lived in multiple suburbs around Melbourne and in all of them it's been a complete mixed bag. Some suburbs it's a bunch of different East Asian cultures, in others it's more a mix of southeast Asian cultures, and some it's a mix of Southern European and middle eastern cultures. But you'll rarely get a super homogenous community.

2 Canada Canada is a country in North America that is next to the United States, and it's the 2nd largest country in the world by area (size is 9.985 million km²). This country has 10 provinces, and 3 territories. Canada became a dominion on July 1, 1867. Its 10 provinces are: Ontario, British Columbia, Quebec, Alberta, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island. Its 3 territories are: Yukon, Northwest territories, and Nunavut. Toronto, Quebec City, Montreal, Vancouver, Winnipeg, St. John's, and Fredericton are major cities in the country. Canada's capital city, Ottawa, is in the southeastern province of Ontario, near the city of Montreal more.

The fact that only 1/5 of their population is actually born in Canada is spectacular. If you ask, Canada does not have a primary culture that is considered ''Canadian'' instead it is cultures coming all around the world that Canadians share all together. Canada is a country that runs and lives off immigration, due to the size of the country they need individuals to make more babies or to immigrate to the country. Canada ranks in the top 5 of the safest countries with a growing economy, specially coming from Calgary. Canada is in my opinion, the best country for a family to move in, everybody is polite and nice, in general jobs are easy to find ( may vary from provinces ), free health care. Overall Canada is the most multicultural country out there, with over 100 different ethnic groups.

This is suppose to be the first one not the second one to be honest. India has mostly brown people not white nor black so Canada has all black brown, Chinese and cultures races in this country. If you go outside you will see people from like 178 countries of the world

If your an immigrant moving to Canada and feel alone and nervous, don't worry. You won't feel alone because everywhere you go, you'll see different cultures and faces. I guarantee that you'll find someone who speaks the same language as you.

You can beat Canada in terms of multi culture. Hands down number 1. You know Canada is multi culture country by the food you can eat here. We have food from around the world.

3 India India, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world. Its capital is New Delhi. Some other major cities are Mumbai, Chennai, and Ahemdabad. The most spoken languages are Hindi and English, but there are 22 official Indian languages.

According to 2017 census it is world's largest growing economy.

Tell me the country which offer's variety in all these?

India is home to over 2000 ethinic groups, contary actually to popular belief that most Indians are brown. There is diversity in literally everything: weather, colour, language, etc.

I think it should be NZ because they have almost every single nationality and it's not population, it's culture and how many there are in the country

New Zealand's capital city is Wellington, while its most populous city is Auckland.

New Zealand is so slept on. We are a VERY multicultural country. We accept, embrace and love or indigenous culture and people. We not only celebrate their culture but also other pacific islands, Indian festivals and Chinese new year. Tell me what other country recognizes and praises their indigenous culture. I rest my case.

The mix of cultures in Auckland is amazing. Auckland's North Shore is home to a large South African, Korean and European communities, while parts of South, East, Central and West Auckland have large Pacific Island, African, Vietnamese, Chinese, Cambodian communities. Our suburbs are ethically diverse which makes Auckland unique.

New Zealand has a lot of ethnicities, culture and multiple cultural foods. NZ should be at least top 3.

Lots of chinese

The sprawling capital, Kuala Lumpur, is home to colonial buildings, busy shopping districts such as Bukit Bintang and skyscrapers including the iconic, 451m-tall Petronas Twin Towers.

I'm Malaysian. I speak English, Malay, Mandarin, Hokkien, and Spanish. I can do that in a single sentence. Often, foreigners argue it is because I went to an international school. But that's not the reason why. It is the nature of Malaysians. Many college friends attended public school and can speak the same amount of languages, if not more, than me.

Malay, Chinese, Indian, Iban, Kadazandusun Culture, and more flourish in Malaysia, and you can get all kinds of cuisine within one block of shops. In one street, you can see a Mosque, Buddhist Temple, Hindu Temple, and Church all having prayer sessions at the same time.

You can see Chinese wearing Baju Kurung (Malay Traditional Outfit), Malays wearing Sarees (Indian Traditional Outfit), and Indians wearing Cheongsam (Chinese Traditional Outfit) even on an ordinary day.

It would be shocking if a Malaysian said they knew less than 3 languages, and it would be practically impossible for a Malaysian to not have tasted ...more

It is probably impossible for you to find a Malaysian who can't speak at least three languages. I myself can speak five, and my parents can both speak seven. You'll find it common in Malaysia that the Chinese here wear Indians' traditional dresses, and the Indians wear Malays', and so on. The English we use here is also a unique version of English called Manglish, whereby Chinese, Indians, Malays, and other Malaysian minorities throw in slangs from their own languages (words that are totally non-English, e.g., "Yesterday we makan at a mamak stall, and the food was sibeh tasty." "Makan" means "eat/ate" in Malay, "mamak" is a type of Indian restaurant and a definite favourite of ALL Malaysians, and "very" means "damn" in Hokkien Chinese.) while they converse, in which everybody understands them. It is literally impossible to try to eliminate a whole race of culture in Malaysia because all the cultures are intertwined. You'd ...more

It is the largest country to have Portuguese as an official language and the only one in the Americas; it is also one of the most multicultural and ethnically diverse nations, due to over a century of mass immigration from around the world; as well as the most populous more.

I like to call Brazil the giant multicultural centre. We may not have a lot of people speaking a lot of different languages, but our version of Portuguese has mish-mash of all types of languages. African culture is huge, and there are place on the south where European culture is really big. A giant Asian and most notably Japanese in "Liberdade", a District in São Paulo, and the indigenous people are also very relevant. Almost everyone has a black, indigenous, latin, European and sometimes Asian descendant, it's crazy how those cultures got together to form Brazilian culture.

But unfortunately, there are some groups trying to make people believe that Brazil is racist and misogynist country, which is total BS.

Brazil has tons of descendants from different cultures: italian, germanic, japanese, chinese, korean, portuguese, spanish, many african groups and many latin-american groups too.

Brazil is the best

Since it has migration, I raise Sweden as 11th most multicultural country.
