Title
Occupational Mobility and Achievements of Post-War Chinese Immigrants in Montreal
Abstract
Two hundred and one post-Second World War Chinese immigrants living in Montreal were interviewed in 1977 to evaluate the degree and pattern of their occupational mobility and process of achievement in Canada. The author found that these immigrants disproportionately entered the professional and service occupations and were relatively immobile in terms of careers in Canada. The author also found that intergenerational mobility into these two occupations is also extensive.
