The Output of Canadian Universities as Measured by Graduate Degrees.
Farine, Avigdor
This paper presents the results of a study of the output of Canadian universities as measured by graduate degrees conferred or by graduates produced. The study was conducted to answer 2 basic questions: (1) Do Quebec universities train enough qualified manpower in comparison with the other provinces? and (2) Encouraged by funds and by the Quebec government policy of catching-up, do the French universities reach the output of the English universities in the province? It was found that Ontario and the Western Provinces have been ahead of Quebec in the graduate degrees/labor force ratio for several years. In Quebec itself, the French universities produce more master's degrees than the English universities, but McGill surpasses all of the French universities in the output of doctorates. As for the catching-up policy set for the French universities, it seems that they have not yet attained the breadth of research and scientific training that doctoral level programs should include.
