Indigenous youth : post-secondary education and the labour market. : R3-233/2016E-PDF

The findings of this study on Indigenous youth and postsecondary education point to the opportunities and challenges in incorporating the young Indigenous population into the Canadian labour force. On the one hand, Indigenous youths’ educational attainment increased between 2006 and 2011. In addition, a higher proportion of Indigenous youth are now completing postsecondary programs. Those Indigenous youth who received post-secondary credentials are having greater labour market success. This population forms a significant source of labour for the Canadian economy, given the growing numbers of Indigenous youth actively participating in the labour market and their increasing educational levels. This is especially so in the western provinces and in northern Canada. On the other hand, attendance rates and educational attainment levels of Indigenous youth remained well below Canadian averages. While they are participating in the labour market, many Indigenous youth lack the credentials needed to achieve greater success.
