Canada's immigration strategy enhances educational standards among new arrivals

Canada's immigration programs have successfully attracted highly educated foreign nationals, leading to racialized women holding more bachelor’s degrees than any other demographic, according to Statistics Canada. In 2021, 48.4% of racialized women had a bachelor's degree or higher, slightly above the 46.5% of racialized men. This group also outperforms the average Canadian education level. The education gap between racialized and total population increased from 2006 to 2021. Only 32.9% of Canadians aged 25-64 hold a bachelor’s degree, while 47.5% of racialized people of the same age do.
