Aboriginal Post-Secondary Education and Labour Market Outcomes

Looks at the education of registered Indians, others of Aboriginal ancestry, and other Canadians, and looks at how this impacts on the employment of those groups. It shows that Aboriginals have a lower level of education than other Canadians and that they are much less likely to be employed. Registered Indians are more likely than others of Aboriginal ancestry to complete their education, or to be employed. Also looks at the fields of studies chosen by Aboriginal youth, and compares Aboriginal rates from those of 1991. Also looks at their level of dependence on government transfers.
