Title
Interprovincial Migration among Chinese Skilled Worker Immigrants to Quebec
Abstract
The author set out to find whether higher levels of education cause the exodus of Quebec's Chinese skilled worker immigrants to other provinces. She first examined the history of Chinese immigration to Canada; the federal and Quebec governments' immigration policies and selection criteria, as well as statistics regarding Chinese migration to Quebec and their out- migration from the province. Her ethnographic findings suggest that higher levels of education are not the main cause of the exodus, nor is the lack of French language competence. Rather, she argues, kin ties, age, and marital status play an influential role on interprovincial-migration of Quebec's Chinese skilled immigrants.
