Each week, CERIC is on the lookout for the latest reports related to career development. Here are three that we found interesting this week:
This annual study provides a snapshot of the gaps in men and women’s access to economic security, personal security, education, health, and positions of leadership in Canada’s largest 26 metropolitan areas. This year’s list shows no clear winner, suggesting that all of Canada’s cities need to be doing more to close their gender gaps.
Living arrangements of families have become increasingly complex and fluid. Close to 1.9 million people in Canada, or 9% of the adult population aged 25 to 64, lived with one or more of their parents in 2017. This was more than double the figure in 1995. While the reasons for living with one’s parents may vary, one important reason is associated with pursuing a post-secondary education.

Decades of research have shown that first-generation students, low-income students, Indigenous students and students with disabilities are less likely to enrol in post-secondary education, and less likely to attain a PSE credential than their peers.
