Recent studies on Chinese immigrants in Canada have indicated an increasing prevalence of transnational migration practices amongst this immigrant group. However, little research has focused on middle-class immigrant women, particularly regarding the transnational migration practices of highly educated and skilled immigrant women professionals. Drawing on empirical research, this paper illuminates highly educated Chinese immigrant women’s transnational familial practices in Canada. It explores how after migration, the women’s marital relationships and their household responsibilities are transformed as a
result of their diminished labor market opportunities, in the context of globalization and economic restructuring. The paper elucidates the various transnational familial practices employed by these women to accommodate the
challenges of working and caring in the new country.
