Insight on Canadian bachelor-level graduates from visible minority groups: StatCan

Statistics Canada has released a new report that provides insight into the differences between Canadian bachelor-level graduates who belong to visible minorities and their graduate counterparts who were not of a visible minority. When examining the student cohorts from 2014-2017, StatCan found that approximately 30% of bachelor’s graduates were part of a visible minority, and typically identified themselves as being Chinese, South Asian, or Black. Average graduation ages differed between different groups: Asian graduates tended to be younger and Black graduates older than graduates were not visible minorities. Science fields were popular with male graduates who were from a visible minority, while female graduates tended to pursue business, the social and behavioural sciences, law, or health.
