    Description:

    This Economic Insights article documents postsecondary enrolment rates among 19-year-olds over the 2001-to-2014 period by province of parental residence, parental income and sex. The data are drawn from the T1 Family File. Postsecondary enrolment is determined by the tuition, education and textbook credits on the personal income tax files. Parental income refers to the adult-equivalent, after-tax income of parents, expressed in 2014 constant dollars. Youth are grouped by parental income quintiles.

    Description:

    The student borrowing rate among postsecondary graduates increased between 1995 and 2005, with borrowers differing little from non-borrowers in terms of employment rates and total personal income. However, borrowers were less likely to have savings or investments, or own their own homes. Total debt for borrower and non-borrower graduates age 20 to 29 was similar, while borrowers had lower assets and net worth than non-borrowers.

    Description:

    It's that time of year again - back-to-school for thousands of students, from kindergarten to college and university. It's a busy and exciting time for parents as well as they stock up on school supplies, buy new clothing for their growing offspring and prepare for the start of another school year, teachers' meetings, homework and report cards.

    In honour of this annual ritual, we have put together a few facts relating to education, including the latest research findings on the very important role that parents play in their children's education, from setting expectations, to playing an active part in their children's learning, to spending on school supplies and extracurricular activities, to saving for the eventual costs of college or university.

    Facts and charts are provided for:Early childhood;School readiness;How common are French immersion programs?;How much homework do 15-year olds do?;Working while in school;Trends in high-school drop-out rates;What influences the decision to pursue a college or university education?;How many young people go on to postsecondary education?;Household savings and spending on education;The costs of attending college or university;Paying for postsecondary education;Government student loan debt;What is the first year of college or university like?Persistence in postsecondary education;University enrolment trends;What is education worth in the labour market?

    Description:

    This article reports on a recent study that draws on data from the 1995 and 2000 classes of the National Graduates Survey (NGS) to examine the impact of recent sharp increases in university tuition fees for professional programs on the participation in those programs of students from different socioeconomic backgrounds. Family socioeconomic background is measured by information on parental education, which is highly correlated with family income, and is thus indicative of ability to pay for their children's postsecondary education.

    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    This study looks at the education costs and financial support for 18 to 24 year old students (17 to 24 in Quebec) pursuing postsecondary studies in Canada during the 2001-2002 academic year. Taking into account the basic costs of postsecondary programs (tuition fees, books and supplies), this study also looks at how students pay for their studies.

    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    Previous studies investigating the role of rising tuition fees in university enrolment by socio-economic background have focused on the fee changes registered among undergraduate programs over the 1990s. Over this period, no changes in enrolment patterns were observed, possibly because the tuition fee increases were small in absolute terms and gradual. This study examines the impact of a very large and sudden deregulation of tuition fees in Ontario professional programs in the late 1990s. The findings suggest that the enrolment gap between students from higher and lower socio-economic backgrounds rose substantially in Ontario, where the deregulation of professional programs was more prominent. In provinces like Quebec and British Columbia, where tuition fees remained stable, no change in the enrolment gap was registered.

    Description:

    The private, for-profit Education Services sector plays a key role in developing the knowledge and skills of the Canadian labour force. As awareness of the importance of lifelong learning has increased, so has interest in the contribution of private, for-profit Education Services to increasing skills and knowledge, productivity, innovation and competitiveness.

    Little statistical information, from either the supply or demand side of the Educational Services sector, is available in Canada. Several federal and provincial ministries, academic researchers and industry participants have expressed a need for more comprehensive statistical information on the sector. As the national statistical agency, Statistics Canada has an interest in filling these information needs.

    This report provides an overview of the Education Services sector in Canada. Drawing on available sources of statistical information, it also looks at whether it is possible to shed light on the size and characteristics of the private, for-profit Education Services sector.

    The study was funded by the Policy Research Initiative.

    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    This comparative study investigates the role of family background characteristics in postsecondary access in Canada and the United States. Given that postsecondary schooling is funded very differently in the two countries, family background may play substantively different roles. The findings suggest that university-going is less common among lower-income students and members of a visible minority group in the U.S. than among their Canadian counterparts. Some possible reasons are discussed.
