The Ontario government has set a goal of seeing 70 per cent of its population earning a postsecondary credential, be it a trade certificate, a college diploma, or a university degree. The current rate is 64 per cent.

Based on projections by the Ministry of Training, Colleges, and Universities and the Council of Ontario Universities, if that goal is achieved, the number of full-time students at Ontario universities will rise to 485,000 by 2020, despite an expected decline in the 18-24 population.

Full-time enrolment in 2010 was 398,000.
