Canadian Immigration Hotline -June 2006 [cached]

The 2005 study by [two clearly neutral] geography professors Shuguang Wang of Ryerson University and Lucia Lo of York University compared landing records from 1980 to 2000 and tax data from 1999, which showed average total income of Chinese immigrants at the time to be only $15,000. [Declared income, presumably!] 'We need to recognize that there's a problem,' said Wilbert Lai, a certified management accountant and member of the Chinese Professionals Association of Canada (CPAC). 'The mosaic is changing and (mainland immigrants) are the most economically stressed.

Canadians had better get it through their thick skulls that whatever happens, or doesn't happen, it's our fault!] While everyone agrees that recognition of foreign credentials is a huge problem, just as important -- if not more so -- is getting immigrants Canadian work experience, said Wilbert Lai, who wants to see tax breaks for firms that hire newcomers.Lai points to the Employment-Language-Mentoring Programme run in Toronto by CPAC, CICS and the Association of Chinese Canadian Entrepreneurs [funded with tax dollars channelled through Immigration Canada] Everyone involved with the ELM program says it needs to be expanded: They want more government funding and more employers involved in the mentoring component. [Meanwhile, hint, Zhong's wife and daughter] would like to stay ... a soon-to-expire visitor's visa stands in their way."
