Across Canada, young people of Aboriginal origin have lower levels of post secondary education than the national average. In the general population, we know that young people who do not complete high school also have greater diffi culties making the transition to the labour force than those who complete high school. Using Cycle II of the Youth in Transition Survey (YITS), this study explores differential patterns of school completion and transition to the workforce between predominately urban Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal youth. We also examine the role of students’ families’ values toward education, and students’ levels of connectedness or engagement with schools as contributing factors to the likelihood of school completion.
