In its Putting Students First plan, the Ontario government committed to an increase of 6,000 new graduate spaces by 2016 at the province’s universities. This paper proposes eight principles to guide the expansion of professional and research-based graduate programs to support innovation in Ontario’s knowledge-based economy and improve the province’s competitive position globally.
In 2012, Ontario universities educated more than 52,000 graduate students. If Ontario’s graduate enrolment in 2015-16 were at the current average of the rest of Canada, there would be approximately 50,000 more spaces (in contrast to the 6,000 spaces that the province has committed to fund).
