Cornwall Ontario –  One hundred per cent of employers of St. Lawrence College (SLC) graduates are satisfied or very satisfied with their hires, scoring well above the provincial rate of 88.9 per cent, according to the annual Key Performance Indicator (KPI) survey released on January 25, 2023. The KPI survey results reflect the experience of students who graduated in the 2020-2021 academic year.

  • 79 per cent of St. Lawrence College graduates were satisfied or very satisfied with the quality of their education; provincially, the Graduate Satisfaction Rate was 75.4 per cent.

“SLC consistently scores above the provincial average in the KPIs,” said Glenn Vollebregt, SLC President and CEO. “Our 100 per cent Employer Satisfaction Rate shows how we fill the need for qualified, highly skilled graduates for in-demand careers and reflects the tremendous work done by our faculty and staff.”

The Cornwall Campus of St. Lawrence College is nestled on the banks of the St. Lawrence River, immediately adjacent to the popular Waterfront Trail. Over 1100 students currently study in Cornwall, including a large number of international students. Many of the local students find jobs with Cornwall employers.

“These results truly demonstrate the incredible caliber of college students in Ontario, and the important role they fill in meeting the workforce needs of provincial employers and industry. If you haven’t met or recruited an Ontario college graduate, I encourage you to get connected and see how their skills and talents will help your business or organization,” added Mr. Vollebregt.

Provincial KPIs are gathered annually by two independent research firms for the colleges and for the Ministry of Colleges and Universities.
