Following the war, millions of Vietnamese fled their homeland for destinations around the world. Sadly, many would languish in refugee camps and overcrowded ships for years. Thousands of these "boat people" would end up in Canada in the late 1970s and early 1980s following changes to the Immigration Act and the initiation of the refugee sponsorship program. In this episode of The Canadians from 1984, host Paul Winn speaks with Vietnamese-Canadian Nock Lee, who arrived in Canada as a refugee in 1980. Lee speaks about her family's evacuation from Saigon and her experiences adjusting to Canadian life as an immigrant woman.
