Join us on Tues., Dec. 1, 2020 from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. for our next session over Zoom: Using Statistics Canada’s Education and Labour Market Longitudinal Platform (ELMLP). We will be welcoming presenters from Statistics Canada: Liliana Corak, Analyst, and Sylvie Gauthier, Chief.


Using Statistics Canada’s Education and Labour Market
Longitudinal Platform (ELMLP)

The Education and Labour Market Longitudinal Platform (ELMLP) is a platform of securely integrated anonymized datasets that are longitudinal and accessible for research and statistical purposes. The Platform enables analysis of anonymized data on past cohorts of college/university students and registered apprentices in order to better understand their pathways and how their education and training affected their career prospects in terms of earnings.

This session from Statistics Canada’s Liliana Corak (Analyst) and Sylvie Gauthier (Chief) will walk through the details of the ELMLP, explain the process of accessing ELMLP data, and highlight current and future analytical work being done with the platform.

It will also present recent results from the ELMLP.

Improving transfer and student mobility data is an essential step to promoting improvements in both practice and policy in our sector. ONCAT has identified several data linkage opportunities that will support a greater understanding of transfer student outcomes and experiences. These include tracking transfer students from secondary to postsecondary education, and from postsecondary to labour market, via custom linkages. As ONCAT continues to expand funding in these areas, we will ensure that more researchers are aware of available opportunities to track students longitudinally via administrative linkages.

ONCAT Shared Learning Sessions create opportunities for ONCAT-funded grantees to share learning, tools, and strategies to promote credit transfer system transformation. Sessions are developed directly in response to areas of interest identified by our grantees. These new presentations and discussions are an excellent way to hear from colleagues across the sector involved in pathway development, research, and action projects focused on improving transfer processes in Ontario. Please contact ONCAT with any questions or for more information.
