ENROLMENT DELCINE IN POST-SECONDARY INSTUTIONS
Facing Enrolment Declines in Post-Secondary Education in Canada: Strategies to Consider
(Posted April 26, 2016)
It is clear that the aging of the Canadian population has already had some impact on overall post-secondary enrolments. Given constant post-secondary participation rates, this impact will continue to 2023 when, compared to 2014, there will be over 35,000 fewer students in Canadian post-secondary institutions. The demographic effect will be more pronounced in universities and relatively less pronounced in colleges but many institutions will continue to face enrolment challenges well into the next decade. Given institutional funding models, which rely on government grants on a per student basis and/or on tuition, many public Canadian colleges and universities can expect eroding financial health unless actions are taken to increase student numbers, reduce costs, or raise revenues. Further, given that the enrolment challenge is generalized, there will be increasing competition between institutions for increasingly scarce students.
