HERE’S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS REPORT:

In this report, we examine the case of Filipino youth in Ontario, who represent an unexplained anomaly. Despite having parents with among the highest rates of university degree holdership of all immigrant groups, Filipino youth have among the lowest rates of university graduation. This applies particularly to those who arrive in Canada during childhood. Furthermore, while women have overtaken men in post secondary educational achievement across all groups, the gender disparity in the Filipino community is especially pronounced. Young Filipino men have among the lowest rates of university graduation of any group.
