Education Matters: Insights on education, learning and training in Canada

April 2006, volume 3 number 1

Students in the labour market

Full-time postsecondary students rely heavily on earnings from paid employment to help finance their education. While more full-time students aged 18 to 24 are working - and working more hours - during the school year than ever before, there has been little improvement in the student summer-job market in the last few years.

Tuition fee deregulation: Who pays?

Sharp rises in tuition fees have occurred in professional programs, especially in Ontario. One result has been a shift in enrolment patterns in those programs, with a decrease in the share of enrolment accounted for by students from middle-class families.


The fourth edition of Education Indicators in Canada: Report of the Pan-Canadian Education Indicators Program is now available. It provides a wealth of statistical information on education for the provinces and territories, including trends in enrolment and graduation at all levels, as well as trends for educators and expenditures in education. It also presents a broad statistical portrait of the school-age population and indicators on such topics as the school readiness of children aged four and five and labour market outcomes.
