StatCan releases labour market outcomes for 2015 graduates

November 18, 2020
A new study from Statistics Canada examines the labour market for graduates from postsecondary institutions three years after graduation. The study draws on data from the National Graduates Survey and focuses on those who graduated from a postsecondary institution in 2015. StatCan found that 4.9% of graduates were unemployed by 2018. 86% of graduates were working permanent jobs by 2018, and the study found that 81% of graduates were working in a field they considered closely or somewhat related to their program. Three-quarters (74%) of graduates felt qualified for their job and 83% reported feeling “very satisfied or “satisfied” with their work. StatCan (Release) | StatCan (Report) (National)
