From the wbapge and released December 15, 2016, “Education Indicators in Canada: An International Perspective was designed to expand upon the information for Canada that is provided to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) for publication in Education at a Glance: OECD Indicators (EAG). The additional, internationally comparable data provided by Education Indicators in Canada complement EAG and support the mission of the Canadian Education Statistics Council (CESC) to “create and commit to comprehensive and long-term strategies, plans, and programs to collect, analyze, and disseminate nationally and internationally policy-relevant and comparable statistical information.”

Twelve indicators are included in Education Indicators in Canada: An International Perspective 2016. The first 11 present information on: educational attainment (Indicator A1); upper secondary graduation rates (A2); labour market outcomes (A3); the financial resources invested in education (B1, B2 and B3); international students (C1); transitions to the labour market (C2); and the organization of learning environments at the elementary and secondary levels (D1, D2 and D3). A 12th indicator (E1) adds a selection of topics related to a recent assessment of adult literacy and numeracy.
