This paper shows that the dominant culture in Canada has not valued domestic labour and communal work because it does not fall under the category of "economic development". Thus, women migrants who work in the home and in the community help their families survive, but because of the sexist and classist lens through which elites have seen their own history, they are ignored by the "official" history of the country they live in. Moreover, they are already dealing with a disadvantage, since the society itself is misogynist and sexist.
