Education and Labour Market Longitudinal Platform (ELMLP) - data updates

May 15, 2019

The Education and Labour Market Longitudinal Platform (ELMLP) will allow researchers access to information about past cohorts of college/university students and registered apprentices, to better understand pathways of post-secondary students in Canada and how their education and training affected their career prospects and earnings.

The ELMLP consists of three core datasets: The Postsecondary Student Information System (PSIS) and the Registered Apprenticeship Information System (RAIS) which are integrated with the T1 Family File (T1FF) for postsecondary students and registered apprentices.

The ELMLP has produced new updates for the Postsecondary Student Information System (PSIS), Registered Apprenticeship Information System (RAIS) and T1 Family File (T1FF).

These core datasets will be updated in the ELMLP on an annual basis.

Core datasets have been updated in the ELMLP include:

  • The Postsecondary Student Information System (PSIS) - a data holding of all public college and university enrollments and graduates by type of program and credential, and field of study for each school year. The ELMLP currently consists of PSIS data from 2009 to 2016 for all provinces and territories and from 2005 to 2016 for the Maritime Provinces.
  • The Registered Apprenticeship Information System (RAIS) - with records from 2008 through 2017. The RAIS compiles data on the number of registered apprentices taking in-class and/or on-the-job training in trades that are either Red Seal or non-Red Seal and where apprenticeship training is either compulsory or voluntary. It also compiles data on the number of provincial and interprovincial certificates granted to apprentices or trade qualifiers (challengers).
  • T1 Family File (T1FF) - select information from the T1FF from 1992 to 2016 is available. The T1FF is only available for PSIS and RAIS records. The linkage dataset consists of T1 Family File (T1FF) and a linkage key for the Postsecondary Student Information System (PSIS) and the Registered Apprenticeship Information System (RAIS).

Please replace your existing copy with the current file.

To link dataset, researchers need to request and be approved for access to the following data sources within the ELMLP:

  • RAIS_PSIS_T1FF_AllYears;
  • RAIS_SIAI_AllYears; and/or
  • PSIS_SIEP_AllYears

For any ELMLP related questions please contact your local Research Data Centre.
