According to a 2013 BBC World Service Poll, 11% of Canadians view Pakistan's influence positively, with 72% expressing a negative view. However, Pakistani views of Canada are much more divided, with 27% viewing Canada positively and 29% viewing Canada negatively.
Figures from the 2006 Canadian Census from StatsCan indicate that there are about 124,000 Canadians who claim Pakistani ancestry. There are, however, sources which show the data may be inaccurate and is likely to be more than double this figure. With some sources estimating that the Pakistani Canadian population may be as high as 250,000 and the Canadian Government quoting a figure of over 300,000, adding that "they continue to make significant contributions to the prosperity and multi-cultural fabric of Canada."
