The earning gap widens: are you ready to make the leap?

“Seven out of 10 new jobs created over the next decade will require a postsecondary credential,” said John Milloy, Minister of Training, Colleges and Universities. “A well-trained and highly skilled workforce will be essential to Ontario’s continued success in the knowledge-based economy.”

A new report by the Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario shows the earning gap between high-school graduates and post-secondary graduates has nearly doubled in the last 20 years.

As the earnings gap widens, students should ask themselves – am I ready to make the leap?

Ontario’s registered private career colleges have been providing post-secondary training for over 140 years. The private career college sector is well equipped to handle the influx of students and new career fields. Career Colleges can quickly adjust to meet the needs of the economy.

While the Canadian economy restructures, a creative and highly educated work force is crucial, making post-secondary credentials all the more important. Post-secondary education doesn’t have to mean a university degree or college diploma – shorter, more career focused diplomas from Ontario’s registered private career colleges provide students with the skills needed to succeed.
