Study: Upgrading and high school equivalency among the Indigenous population living off reserve

Released: 2019-09-19

A new study, "Upgrading and high school equivalency among the Indigenous population living off reserve," is now available as part of the series Insights on Canadian Society.

The study examines the characteristics of Indigenous people who have completed upgrading or high school equivalency programs. It also examines whether completing such a program helps people achieve better outcomes later in life, in terms of both educational achievement and labour market participation.

  Note to readers

The study is based on data from the Aboriginal Peoples Survey (APS), a national survey of First Nations people living off reserve, and Métis and Inuit aged 15 and older. In 2017, the APS focused on the topics of employment and skills and training. It also collected information on education, health, languages, income, housing and mobility.
