The number of foreign residents is estimated to range from 8,000 to 12,000. Of these 7,000 are from the United States alone; enough to warrant their own US consulate as well as chapters of the Lion's Club, the American Legion, the Veterans of Foreign Wars and Mexico's only Audubon Society. Cultural opportunities, mild climate and low crime, along with a reasonable, ten-hour drive to the US border, make San Miguel de Allende very attractive. Canadian residents are next most numerous foreigners. Foreign residents have considerable economic and cultural influence, despite being less than ten percent of the total municipal population. Many cultural and civic institutions, including the Institute Allende, the Botanical Gardens and the public library (the second largest English language book collection in Mexico) were started by foreigners. Foreigners have had a constructive influence regarding social programs and governance.
