Canadian Filipino youths are less likely to hold a degree than their peers in other immigrant groups, says a new Canadian study.
Winnipeg group A.N.A.K collaborated with the researcher from York Centre for Asian Research, who conducted the study.
The study shows financial hardship is often a factor.
Parents often work extra jobs and irregular hours which means less time for parents to support and guide children, said the study.
It also means a lack of role models working based on their degrees, said the study.
