Title
English Caribbean Immigrant Entrepreneurs in Montreal
Abstract
An examination of why English-speaking Caribbean immigrants to Montreal are less inclined than other ethnic minority immigrant groups to start their own businesses. The author concludes that contrary to theory, labour market disadvantages are not the cause of English Caribbean immigrants' low participation in entrepreneurship. Instead, these immigrants are negligibly endowed in class and ethnic resources and their cultural value orientations do not embrace entrepreneurship.
