The "Head Tax" law
-Chinese still came to Canada
-government raised tax

The head tax was a burden for Chinese immigrants, but it did not prevent them from coming to Canada. For many of these poor Chinese labourers, the opportunity to earn as much as $30 a month was much more attractive than the $2 a month they earned in China. Therefore, they were willing to borrow the money to pay for the overseas trip and the head tax. The Canadian government responded by raising the head tax to $100 in 1900, and then to $500 in 1903.
