by Finnie, R., Miyairi, M., Dubois, M., Bonen, T. and Amery, B.

Published by Education Policy Research Initiative in partnership with Labour Market Information Council

The Education Policy Research Initiative (EPRI), in partnership with the Labour Market Information Council (LMIC), has leveraged Statistics Canada’s new Education and Labour Market Longitudinal Platform (ELMLP) to provide new and unique information on post-secondary education (PSE) graduates’ early labour market outcomes over the period 2011 through 2015. This project builds on the success of the earlier Barista or Better project. by providing an analysis that is comprehensive in scope, including all graduates from all publicly funded PSE institutions across the country and covering 6 major credentials, ranging from college-level certificates to advanced university degrees, as well as by 11 fields of study within each credential. Furthermore, a companion interactive dashboard allows users to explore earnings patterns across all credentials and fields of study according to their own interests and needs
