Does education pay? : a comparison of earnings by level of education in Canada and its provinces and territories : Census of population, 2016.: CS98-200/2016-24E-PDF

"Canadians complete postsecondary education for many reasons, including the desire to improve their quality of life or to pursue their passion. For many, ensuring financial security after graduation is also an important motivation. This report looks at how postsecondary education credentials pay off in earnings for working-age men and women in the labour market. One’s choice of level of education, field of study and location of work all contribute to how much one gets paid. Broader trends in the Canadian economy also have an influence on how workers with different educational qualifications are compensated for their work. To shed light on the outcomes of the Canadian educational system and to inform Canadians about their education choices, this census report presents the earnings of Canadians aged 25 to 64 with different levels of education and living in different parts of the country”--Introd., p. 1.
