StatCan releases data on aging, parity in full-time teaching staff


Statistics Canada has released a report and data on full-time teaching staff at Canadian universities. The report states that 27.6% of full-time academic staff in the 2021/2022 academic year were 55-to-64 years old, with the median age now 13 years higher than it was in 1971/72. StatCan further analyzed the gender differences among full-time teaching staff and notes that gender parity has been achieved in ranks below assistant professor, assistant professor, and associate professor. While gender parity in higher ranks has not yet been achieved, the report states, the proportion of women who are full-time university teaching staff is increasing.
