In 2019, Canada became the most educated country in the world. According to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), over 56% of Canadian adults between the ages of 25 and 64 received a two-year or four-year degree or received an education through a vocational program.
In addition to the OECD accolade, Canada also saw a surge in employment this year, a sign of strength in the country’s overall economic growth.
