Economic Life

From: The Encyclopedia of Canada's Peoples/Nepalis/

The Nepalis who have immigrated to Canada are, by and large, a well-educated group, and a number of them have advanced university degrees. Members of the Nepali community in Canada occupy positions as professors, bankers, accountants, doctors, engineers, architects, computer professionals, agriculturalists, and researchers. Some have private practices in medicine, pharmacy, and accounting, or are self-employed in various fields such as real estate and the hospitality and service sectors. While there are Nepali Canadians working in restaurants and factories, others have high-level positions as senior executives in corporations and partners in national firms. Nepali immigrants are also beginning to establish small businesses, such as restaurants and specialty stores.
