The transition from school to work: the NEET (not in employment, education or training) indicator for 20- to 24-year-olds in Canada
Among the highlights of this fact sheet:
- In 2018/2019, 287,400 young Canadians aged 20 to 24 (12%) were NEETs, with rates ranging between 10% and 17% among the provinces.
- Young people aged 20 to 24 without a high school diploma are particularly at risk of finding themselves in a NEET situation and more likely to be permanently unable to work than those with more schooling.
- A low proportion of young people aged 20 to 24 have children, but the presence of children in households significantly affects the participation of women in the labour market.

Métis women reported a lower employment rate than men, which was further observed across most levels of education, even among those with a university degree.
