StatsCan compares full-time teaching staff at universities

December 19, 2018

Statistics Canada has released an infographic comparing the number and make up of full-time teaching staff at Canadian Universities in 2017/2018 to those in previous years. The infographic notes that, since the end of mandatory retirement legislation, the number of professors over the age of 65 has increased sixfold. While almost 90% of full-time academic staff were men in 1957, women occupied 40% of these positions in 2017. While men outnumber women at the full professor level, StatCan states that the lower ranks see more equal representation. StatsCan
