Canadians and TEFL in Korea
Canadians are still going to Korea to teach English in huge numbers. A fraction of those are doing it illegally, risking deportation and jail time by obtaining employment with fake degrees. The argument used to be that young Canucks had little choice given the economy at home but surely that isn't the case anymore. Jobs abound in Alberta and British Columbia, jobs that pay more than TEFL in Korea.
There is obviously more to the attraction than money. Why are people still risking arrest to teach where they shouldn't?

"There is obviously more to the attraction than money. Why are people still risking arrest to teach where they shouldn't?" I've always placed the blame on TESOL course providers in Canada and recruiters. If someone wants to run a little test, find as many course providers in Canada as you can and contact them asking about how one can get to teach in Korea without a degree. I'll wager many will be much more interested in getting the course fee than in providing the right info.
