Ontario University Graduate Survey

Each year, graduates of university undergraduate programs are surveyed about their success in finding work through the Ontario University Graduate Survey. Survey results on employment are combined with information collected on graduation and Canada-Ontario Student Loan default rates. From this data, a set of values called “key performance indicators” are produced and published and they measure results for each Ontario university.
