This report explored the nature of educational pathways and the links between educational pathways and the labour market in Ontario, and compared these outcomes with Canada as a whole. The report was designed to inform policy and practices at the departmental level within post-secondary education institutions, at the institutional level, and at the system level as a whole. The researchers found that the extent to which students stayed within the same field of education when they undertook a second post-secondary education qualification varied quite widely between fields of education, but that overall, pathways within fields of education were quite modest.
