MP education breakdown: How do our representatives stack up?

In advance of Monday's election, E4D volunteers have put together some infographics looking at the education breakdown for MPs and cabinet ministers in our last Parliament. Keep this information in mind when you head to the polls on Monday!

The Canadian government decides on policies that affect the health and prosperity of our country and environment. Often, these decisions are in specialized fields that require technical expertise, like medicine, environmental assessment, engineering, amongst others. Check out our educational background analyses and see if you think our government is capable of accessing and making use of relevant data needed to make smart public policy decisions.
