Chinese mobilities in the age of transnational migration: Theorizing the triple glass effect from the experience of recent Chinese immigrants in Canada

Shibao Guo 郭世宝

University of Calgary, Canada

As the globalization of migration intensifies, an increasing number of Chinese have migrated to Canada as part of the global talent movement. Among them, many settled down in Calgary and Edmonton, Canada’s fourth and fifth largest destination cities for Chinese immigrants. In examining the economic integration of Chinese immigrants in Calgary and Edmonton, this study reveals that recent immigrants have encountered multi-faceted barriers, particularly in employment and language. Furthermore, they have experienced deskilling and devaluation of their prior learning and work experience after immigrating to Canada. Immigrants’ negative experience can be attributed to a triple glass effect consisting of a glass gate, glass door, and glass ceiling. While a glass gate denies immigrants’ entrance to guarded professional communities, a glass door blocks immigrants’ access to professional employment at high-wage firms. It is the glass ceiling which prevents immigrants from moving up to management positions because of their ethnic and cultural differences. This study calls for the adoption of an inclusive framework that works toward recognitive justice in balancing freedom of mobility with recognition and full membership in Canada.
