Executive Summary

Through this project we analyzed ethno-racial disparities in vertical transfer (e.g., college-to-university) intent among Ontario college applicants using Academica’s University/College Applicant Study (UCAS). This is a topic that has received very limited attention within the Ontario context, but which has both research and policy implications.
