After the Downturn

Canadians with less than a high school diploma were most severely affected by the economic downturn of 2008-2009. Despite economic recovery by 2011, even fewer of the least educated Canadians were employed, and the number of Canadians with only a high school diploma who held jobs still had not rebounded completely. Canadians with post-secondary education (PSE) experienced stable employment numbers during the downtown, and increased numbers after the recovery.
