Each year since 1991, the Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology (SIAST) has conducted a follow-up study of program graduates to compare information on employment outcomes for graduates of Aboriginal ancestry to those for all graduates. In 1994, a project was undertaken to analyze responses from the surveys conducted from 1991 to 1994 to determine trends in outcomes for Aboriginal graduates. The analysis revealed the following: (1) in 1991, 74.4% of the Aboriginal respondents were employed 6 months after graduation, compared to 77.9% for graduates overall, representing a differential of 3.5%; (2) in 1992, a year of recession in the province, this differential rose to 9%, suggesting that Aboriginal graduates were more affected by the economic downturn than graduates overall; (3) in 1994, 77 of the 1,600 respondents to the survey identified themselves as Aboriginal and 71.4% of these were employed, compared to 78.3% of graduates overall; (4) in 1991, 15% of both groups found employment outside of Saskatchewan, while by 1993 only 11% of Aboriginal graduates and 12% of graduates overall did so; and (5) the mean monthly salary for Aboriginal graduates was $1,743 in 1992, $1,682.85 in 1993, and $1,794.72 in 1994, while for all graduates in 1994 the mean monthly salary was $1,780.71. Data tables are included. (HAA)
