This report is produced as part of the Pan-Canadian Education Indicators Program (PCEIP). It allows readers to compare data for the provinces and territories with data for OECD countries. The indicators presented in this report are parallel to 12 of the indicators presented in the OECD publication Education at a Glance 2016
This report provides the initial results for Canada and the provinces from OECD's PISA 2015. PISA is a triennial survey of the knowledge and skills of 15-year-olds near the end of their compulsory schooling. The report presents both national and provincial results in science, reading, and mathematics, and complements the information presented in the PISA 2015 international report.
This report provides the initial results from OECD's PISA 2015. PISA is a triennial survey of the knowledge and skills of 15-year-olds near the end of their compulsory schooling. The major focus of the 2015 assessment was science, with a secondary focus on reading and mathematics. Results are compared across 72 countries and economies around the world.
Assessment Matters! is a series of policy-oriented research notes designed to explore educational issues in Canada and Canadian jurisdictions. These notes are based on the results of international and national assessment programs, including the Pan-Canadian Assessment Program (PCAP), the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), the Progress in International Reading Literacy Study (PIRLS), and the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS).
Where do Canada's northern territories stand when it comes to proficiency in literacy and numeracy skills? The Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC) goes a long way toward answering that question. Although previous studies have examined the determinants of literacy and numeracy of different groups within Canada, very few have specifically analyzed the populations of the country's northern territories Yukon, Northwest Territories, and Nunavut. Here we look at literacy and numeracy results for the region, with the aim of identifying the key factors contributing to the development of these skills.
This report uses data from the Survey of Adult Skills conducted under the OECD Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC) to look at postsecondary education and skills of Canadians. It examines the level of postsecondary attainment in Canada and in an international context, and provides a detailed analysis of the relationship between postsecondary education and foundational skills.
It should be noted that Canada participated in the first round of the survey in 201112, along with 23 other countries, all but one of which were OECD Member countries. Nine additional countries, six of which were OECD Member countries, participated in a second round in 201415. The analysis in this report was completed before the release of the second-round data, so the international information presented in the report uses data from the first round only. As such, the relative position of Canadian results may be somewhat different in studies of postsecondary education that use data from both rounds of the survey.
This document examines all Statistics Canada data sources that contain Indigenous identifiers and provides details about the target population, frequency of data collection, Indigenous identifiers used, geographic coverage, and methodological or other issues for each data source. There is also a brief overview of the types of data collected by Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada.
This report is produced as part of the Pan-Canadian Education Indicators Program (PCEIP). It allows readers to compare data for the provinces and territories with data for OECD countries. The indicators presented in this report are parallel to 12 of the indicators presented in the OECD publication Education at a Glance 2015.
This report examines the results from PCAP 2013 in relation to variables derived from questionnaires completed by students, teachers, and school principals. It reports the results both descriptively and using simple and multiple regression models.
PCAP is methodologically highly complex, requiring intensive collaboration among stakeholders. The PCAP 2013 Technical Report describes those methodologies, along with other features that have enabled PCAP to provide high quality data. The descriptions are provided at a level that will enable review and, potentially, replication of the implemented procedures and technical solutions to problems.
This annual report is published by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). It provides a compilation of indicators that report on the current state of education across OECD countries, examining issues such as the human and financial resources invested in education, how education and learning systems operate and evolve, and the returns to educational investments.

This report presents the results of the International Computer and Information Literacy Study (ICILS) 2013 for the Canadian jurisdictions that participated in the study. It provides information on the achievement of Grade 8 students in computer and information literacy, contextual information on different factors explaining students' results, and an overview of approaches to CIL teaching and learning in various jurisdictions. Ontario and Newfoundland and Labrador were the only two Canadian provinces that participated in the study, and their results are compared against 20 countries around the world.
This report presents the results of the 2013 International Computer and Information Literacy Study in which 21 countries and education systems, including two Canadian provinces, participated. It provides information on the achievement of Grade 8 students in computer and information literacy, as well as contextual information on different factors explaining students' results.
The Pan-Canadian Assessment Program (PCAP), a collaborative effort among Canadian provinces and territories, is a survey of the knowledge and skills of students in Grade 8/Secondary II in the core subject areas. The 2013 report describes the performance of Grade 8 students in the third administration of PCAP, in which the major domain was science and the secondary or minor domains were reading and mathematics. CMEC developed PCAP to ensure the availability of statistically valid, comparable data on student achievement which can be used by education researchers, policy-makers, and government officials to understand and make improvements to provincial and territorial education systems.
This report contains the main outcomes of the 37th Session of the UNESCO General Conference held in November 2013, along with interventions by the Canadian delegation at the Education Commission. The 37th session focused on a variety of issues, including the 2014-17 budget for the commission, Education beyond 2015, the potential global standard-setting instrument on the recognition of higher-education qualifications, and the United Nations Decade of Education for Sustainable Development post-2014 Global Action Programme.
