Question 2
Most Korean immigrants to Canada were illiterate and had experience mostly in trade labour

False. Over the years, most Korean Canadians, both immigrants and their children, came as highly skilled workers or professionals such as doctors, professors, engineers, computer and electronic personnel. Often they set themselves up in businesses such as food stores, gas bars, restaurants, printing shops, real-estate and insurance industries. The majority of the more recent immigrants are business and entrepreneurial families.
