In an article titled “Chinese techno-immigrants in Western Canada,” two sociologists describe how U.S. corporations, including Microsoft, have opened high-tech arms in Metro Vancouver to capitalize on Canada’s less-restrictive approach to migration.

“High-tech computer programming and computer systems analysis have been the two most common intended occupations of all skilled immigrants to Canada, most of whom come from Asia,” write SFU’s Karl Froschauer and the University of Calgary’s Lloyd Wong.

The university has conducted two scientific studies in co-ordination with TUCFA on the gender gap in academic salaries, the first in 2004 and the second in 2011. Data on all full-time academic employees (not sessional instructors) was obtained from Human Resources, following the appropriate confidentiality protocols. The first study was conducted by Dr. Jean Wallace and the second by Dr. Jenny Godley, both faculty members in the Department of Sociology.
