Trends in Higher Education: Enrolment

I ran across this sobering report in the March 2009 issue of University Affairs today:
Within two years, the size of the 18-to-21-year-old cohort is expected to level out and start declining nationwide, according to Trends in Higher Education: Enrolment(published by the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada). That decline won’t be uniform and will be strongest in the four Atlantic provinces and Saskatchewan. “Institutions in these provinces will all confront significant enrolment challenges over the coming two decades,” says the 2007 study.
