  • Stats in brief: 11-627-M2020083
    Description:

    Apprenticeship training programs are essential for developing the skills and knowledge of tradespeople and maintaining a skilled labour force in Canada. This Infographic paints a portrait of registered apprentices across Canada, as well as those who certified in a trade. In addition, there is a focus on women in the trades especially those entering male-dominated trades, and the preliminary results of the COVID-19 Shutdown and its impact on the apprenticeship system. These results are based on the Registered Apprenticeship Information System (RAIS) that compiles data on the number of registered apprentices, certifications and trade qualifiers in Canada on an annual basis.

  • Articles and reports: 11F0019M2020016
    Description:

    In both Canada and the United States, immigrants constitute a disproportionately large share of the supply of university-educated labour trained in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields. This article examines the Canada–U.S. differences in the occupational skill utilization and earnings of STEM-educated immigrant workers. Using data from the 2016 Census for Canada and the combined 2015 to 2017 American Community Survey, this analysis focuses on immigrants with a university degree in a STEM field who were aged 25 to 64 and arrived as adults.

    In Canada, immigrants represented more than half of the population in the prime working ages with at least a bachelor’s degree in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields of study in 2016. They accounted for three-quarters of engineering and computer science graduates with a master’s or doctorate degree. This paper examines the skill utilization and earnings of employed STEM-educated immigrants by field of study and degree level.

  • Classification: 12-590-X
    Description:

    The Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) is used for classifying instructional programs according to field of study. CIP was originally created by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) in the United States. It is a hierarchical classification. CIP Canada is the adaptation of this classification for use in Canada. CIP Canada 2016 is made up of 49 2-digit series, 387 4-digit subseries and 1,689 6-digit instructional program classes. The classification provides a detailed description of each instructional program class together with illustrative examples of the types of instructional programs found in that class. Illustrative examples are also provided of closely related programs that are classified elsewhere. In addition, the classification includes an introduction to CIP and an alternative structure for the aggregation of field of study data. CIP has a ten-year revision cycle.
