We are excited to share the results of a sectoral study on the economic impact of career colleges in Ontario conducted by the Higher Education Strategy Associates earlier this year. The study sheds light on the indisputable value that career colleges bring to our province’s economic wellbeing by looking not only at its own economic footprint, but also the economic impact of its graduates. Given the vast changes that our economic landscape has undergone since the last study was conducted in 2012 – including the challenges presented by an aging workforce and exacerbated, in turn, by a global pandemic –  it’s high time to zero-in on the indispensable nature of career colleges in bridging labour supply with dire labour demand. We hope you enjoy the read.
