When Dominic moved to Canada, he sponsored the whole family over and Mr. & Mrs. Sung Yen Hui lived happily in Cabbagetown, Toronto for many years. Every day he would spend his time walking the streets of Spadina Chinatown, smiling and meeting everyone that passed by and became a well-respected member of the Chinatown Community. He even took ESL classes so he could learn English to speak with the Canadians in Toronto.
