Who Are Ontario’s Highly Qualified Personnel?

Building on our previous report with R.A. Malatest & Associates Ltd., Compute Ontario commissioned a study with the Brookfield Institute of Innovation + Entrepreneurship titled, “Who Are Ontario’s Highly Qualified Personnel?” to develop a sharper picture of HQP. This report provides a more comprehensive understanding of the skilled labour within Ontario’s ARC sector, offering a profile of their gender and geographic distributions, income and education levels.


Who Are Ontario’s Highly Qualified Personnel? highlights the need for the creation and adoption of diversity and inclusion strategies within the sector to enhance research and competitiveness within Ontario. This report has further strengthened Compute Ontario’s commitment to building awareness, informing policy, and creating actionable programs by collaborating with our stakeholders to promote and develop HQP in Ontario.
