Annual Ontario College Performance

Since 1998, Ontario’s Ministry of Colleges and Universities and colleges of applied arts and technology have jointly defined Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to measure, in a consistent manner across the college system, college performance against Ministry-stated objectives for post-secondary programs. The four* KPIs are: Graduate Satisfaction Rate, Graduation Rate, Graduate Employment Rate and Employer Satisfaction Rate.

The KPI data are used by colleges to demonstrate their achievements and to identify where changes could be made to programs and services to better meet student, industry, and labour market needs. The Ministry also uses the data to advise and inform government about the colleges and in planning and policy making for the college system.

*Although since 2019, the Ministry no longer measures student satisfaction, Collège Boréal has continued to evaluate this KPI independently for purposes of continuous improvement.
