The UCASS survey was conducted annually from 1937 to 2011 to present a national picture of the socioeconomic characteristics of full-time academic staff working in universities. In 2012, Statistics Canada refocused some of its resources and cancelled the UCASS. However, due to the continuing demand for the data, the survey is being reinstated as of 2016-2017! With the reinstatement, Statistics Canada will work towards expanding data collection to include colleges and part-time academic staff. The UCASS collects data that include gender, age, principal subject taught, salary and administrative stipends, province or country of degrees earned, and academic rank. This information helps users understand how universities are evolving and have implications for workforce renewal, salary analysis for contract negotiations, projections of demand, and international comparative statistics. Data collection starts in September 2016 for about 120 Canadian universities, with the first results to be released in April 2017. Read more here.
