Canadian PSE will Fall Short in Global Future

January 19, 2007

"Canadian PSE: A Positive Record - An Uncertain Future" is a new report released by the Canadian Council on Learning that claims to be the first national survey of Canadian higher education. Currently 44% of Canadians have some form of PSE under their belts -- the second highest rate in the world. Access to PSE in Canada, however, remains linked to financial status and geographic location. Minorities are conspicuously underrepresented. The report predicts labour shortages by 2016, and states that the current lack of a national education strategy will soon yield domestic and global obstacles for Canada and its residents.
