Abstract

This paper provides a specific perspective of Chinese-Canadian relations by studying the knowledge and attitudes of Chinese students towards Canadian political and local issues. The data and conclusions presented are based on 134 questionnaires that analyze the level of knowledge and attitudes the participants had and what factors contributed to this. The findings reveal that the participants had very little knowledge about Canada and fairly negative attitudes towards Canada, compared to other countries such as the United States, Japan, and the United Kingdom. Moreover, certain factors, such as sex, place of birth, and proficiency with English, impacted the level of knowledge and attitudes among the participants.
