EPRI-ESDC Tax-Linkage Project

This project links administrative student data held by 14 PSE institutions across the country with tax files at Statistics Canada in order to track students' post-graduation earnings. The goal of this project is to provide unique and powerful learning and labour market information that will be useful to the PSE institutions, to students making schooling choices, to employers, to PSE and labour market policy makers, and to the general public. The project is funded by Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC), with a contribution from the Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario (HEQCO).Click here to explore more about the project. ≫
