Study on growth of college postgraduate credential programs: StatsCan


A study by Statistics Canada shows that college postgraduate credential programs have grown in popularity, rising sharply from 6% of all college graduations in 2014 to 13% in 2019. The growth has largely been driven by Indian international students, with ten times as many graduating with postgraduate credentials in 2019 as did in 2014. StatsCan states that international students with postgraduate credentials received permanent residency at a higher rate than graduates of other credentials, with 80% doing so within five years of graduation. Graduates with postsecondary college credentials also had higher average wages than those with non-postgraduate college certificates, but lower than those with bachelor’s degrees.
