Title
Key Demographic and Socio-Economic Characteristics of English-Speaking Youth (15-29)
Abstract
There are 225,585 English-speaking youth (15-29) living in Quebec (circa 2016), out of a population of 1.1 million English speakers in the province. They form 20.5 percent of their language population. (To compare, French-speaking youth aged 15-29 years comprise 17.5 percent of Quebec’s majority language group.) In 2016, 68.2 percent of English-speaking youth were living on a low income ($20,000 or less), compared to 59.8 percent of French-speaking youth. In this same year, 13.3 percent of English-speaking youths were unemployed compared to 9.8 percent of French-speaking youth. Among English-speaking youth, 51.6 percent report high school leaving or less as their highest level of educational attainment, while 20.4 percent claim a university diploma or degree at the bachelor level or above as their highest level of educational attainment (13.9 percent of French-speaking youth claim a university degree).
