StatsCan study highlights childhood factors that influence Indigenous student high school completion, higher education

A recent study from Statistics Canada has identified several childhood factors that are associated with the high school completion and higher education participation rates of young adults who are First Nations living off-reserve, M├ętis, or Inuit. The longitudinal study found that factors such as suitable housing, a higher household income, and academic performance are associated with high school completion or higher education. The study also found that older students were more likely to have completed high school or postsecondary than their younger counterparts, which aligns with other research that suggests that not all Indigenous people have a direct path to high school completion.
