We present an analysis of the data collected through a survey of 362 Inuit students and graduates from Nunavut who attended a college or university in Canada. Most respondents reported that they were satisfied with their post-secondary educational experience, but more importantly, also reported that post-secondary education had greatly improved their income and job outcomes. Finally, post-secondary education clearly contributes to capacity building: half of the respondents work in their communities, and a majority of the respondents who are not in their communities would like to work there. However, some issues need to be addressed by policy-makers – the most notable being gender inequality in terms of job status, systemic discrimination against Inuit language speakers in the educational system, and the need to provide more access to post-secondary education. Finally, the results obtained allowed us to develop a multivariate model based on Multiple Correspondence Analysis (MCA) taking into account the background, the academic experience before and during post-secondary studies and the professional experience.
