Background and History
-Chinese person can’t leave china, they may physically leave, but they still belong to
china
-there are two factors when leaving a country: push and pull factors
-push factors are factors that push people away for a variety of reasons, ex. War,
environmental disasters, government,
-pull factors are attracting factors. Reasons why someone would want to go somewhere
else ex. Job opportunities, stability, education,
-Diaspora (Greek word), scattering people to different places
-a factor is how the migrant group interacts within the receiving society/ host society
-at the beginning the Chinese workers were welcomes because they brought cheap labour
-but it changed when the government took charge over immigration
-when Canada needed the railroad built they allowed 14000 workers
-after building the railroad in 1889 the Canadian government placed a head tax, a fee to
enter the country; it controlled the number of Chinese people immigrating
-from 1923 to 1949 hardly any Chinese people entered Canada because it was almost
impossible
-because it was so difficult to come to Canada, Chinese people only sent young men to
work (Chinatown known as the bachelor society)
Types of immigrants:
-economic migrants that can contribute to society, willing to come to work
-dependence migrants, family reunification: sponsoring families to come
-refugee migrants, people who are a fleeing their countries usually for political or
economic reasons, these are push factors
-Chinese immigrants eventually could get Canadian citizenships (recognition by the state
that you are a full member of that society; you have rights) they become part of a society
-Chinatown is a clear example of segregation of cultures; they are isolated; citizenship
tore down some of these barriers
-legal frameworks that different states at different moments might decide to instate
