Fact Sheet - Learning to know: High-School Dropout Rate (2010)

The authors of this document begin by defining the dropout rate as the proportion of Canadians aged 20 to 24 who have not completed high school and are not attending school.

They note that while Canada’s overall high-school dropout rate has declined significantly since the early 1990s, there are still areas of concern, including consistently higher dropout rates for young men compared with women of the same age. There are also higher dropout rates in rural areas and among Aboriginal people.

The authors also note that while Canada’s dropout rate is significantly lower than that of the United States, Germany and France, it is higher than the rates found in many European countries and is more than twice that of Norway.
