Canadians Are Educated And They’re Working Longer

The latest census figures show more Canadians are spending longer in the classroom and they’re working longer careers. The numbers show more than half of Canada’s core working population – those aged 25 to 64 – have degrees or diplomas from a college or university. That’s the highest rate among a group of comparable countries that includes the United States. And while women now account for half of all master’s degrees in Canada,  they’re still struggling to close the wage gap with men. For example, a male in Saskatchewan with an apprenticeship certificate earned a median income about $13,000 higher than a female with a university degree in the province.The census also shows one-fifth of seniors over age 65 were in the workforce last year, twice the rate from 20 years ago.
