Six out of every 10 adults aged 25 to 64 (63%) had a postsecondary qualification of some form in the Yukon Territory in 2006, representing the highest proportion in Canada.
This proportion was even higher in older age groups. Nearly two-thirds (65%) of adults aged between 45 and 54 were postsecondary graduates, as were 64% of those aged 55 to 64.
About 22% of the Yukon Territory's adult population had a university degree; 24% had a college diploma; and 13% had a trades certificate. An additional 21% of the adult population had a high school diploma, while 15% did not have a high school diploma.
About 2,600 adults aged between 25 and 64 in the Yukon Territory lived in a different territory or in a province in 2001. Two-thirds (69%) of these newcomers to the territory had a postsecondary qualification.
