Compared to any other country in the G7, Canada currently has the largest share of the population with a college or university credential, reports Statistics Canada. One-in-three working-age Canadians have completed a bachelor’s degree or higher, and there have been notable increases in the number of degree holders in fields such as health care and computer science. StatCan also noted that workers with a bachelor’s degree or higher were more likely to work in triple-protected jobs, and so tended to be protected during the pandemic. However, there are gaps in this workforce: The qualifications of some foreign-educated workers are being underused and there is notable stagnation and losses in the number of working-age apprenticeship certificate holders in trades such as construction, mechanic and repair technologies, and precision production.
