Additional usage notes

  • The Banff Centre does not offer Certificate, Degree or Diploma programs. As a result, no data for the Banff Centre is listed in the above table.
  • Program Completions include Completions in Certificate, Degree and Diploma programs only.
  • As the Journeyman Program Type is a Certificate credential, students completing their final instructional portion in their apprenticeship program are included in the values above (even though they have not received their apprenticeship certification).
  • Academic years are related to each individual institution, and generally run from May through April or July through June. The data is submitted at the end of each academic year, and then requires a rigorous review and sign off, meaning there is a time lag of approximately one year before data is updated. For example, the 2013-14 academic year enrolments are first submitted in July/August of 2014, and the system data would not be released until all submissions are finalized. This translates to the 2013-14 academic year typically being ready for use by December 2014 at the earliest.
  • Some Credential and Program Type combinations were first offered in later years, and therefore the first year with completers for these combinations may not be until well after 2004-05 (eg. Certificate Post-Diploma)
