The Saskatchewan Ministry of Advanced Education, in partnership with Saskatchewan post-secondary institutions and the Saskatchewan Apprenticeship and Trade Certification Commission, surveyed people who were registered at a post-secondary institution in the province in 2015-16, but may not have returned to the institution in the 2016-17 academic year and did not complete their program/credential. The purpose of this survey is to explore the experiences and perceptions which resulted in individuals leaving their post secondary program prior to receiving a credential.
The ministry contracted Prairie Research Associates (PRA) Inc., an independent research firm, to undertake the survey. This survey was developed in accordance with Saskatchewan privacy legislation.
This study was conducted on-line and by telephone between December 14, 2018, to March 9, 2019. This was the first survey of this kind done provincewide.
