StatsCan predicts 9% drop in enrolments by 2026

November 21, 2007

While full-time PSE enrolment is projected to increase steadily until 2012 (five years from now), Statistics Canada predicts in a new report that demographics could lead to a 9% decrease in the 13 years following that. Alternative scenarios in the report would see enrolment plateau rather than plummet, possibly by raising male PSE participation levels to match those of females.
