Education indicators in Canada

March 31, 2016 at 8:00 am Leave a comment

On March 29, CMEC released a document titled Education indicators in Canada: An international perspective (seems to be based on data/information from 2011-204). If you are into a pan-Canadian comparative education – then this is for you. It includes data from primary grades to post-secondary (tertiary) levels. It compiles data from the following areas:

  1. The output of educational institutions and the impact of learning
  2. Financial resources invested in education
  3. Access to education, participation and progression
  4. The learning environment and organization of schools
  5. Skills proficiencies of adults

If  you are  like – a skimmer of headlines – and the thought of ploughing through all the charts and data is totally tedious, there is a highlights page.  Here are a couple of indicators that I found interesting from here:

  • In Canada, the proportion of adults aged 25 to 64 with tertiary education (college/university completion) increased to 54% in 2014, the highest rate among OECD countries.
  • In Canada and other OECD countries, employment prospects increase with educational attainment.
  • Canadians with higher levels of educational attainment tended to have higher levels of ICT and problem-solving skills.
