December 12, 2007

More than half of Canadian students over age 16 work while attending school.  The majority of 15-year-olds have the Internet at home, and "university graduates earned more than twice the salary of employees who dropped out before graduating from high school," according to a new report from Statistics Canada and the Council of Ministers of Education of Canada (CMEC).  The most growth in university enrolment between 1994 and 2005 was in graduate studies, with a 32% increase.  Undergraduate program enrolment increased by 19% over the same period.
