Abstract     
"This paper uses a unique policy change in Canada's most populous province, Ontario, to provide direct evidence on the effect of reducing the length of high school on labour market outcomes for high school graduates. The key change to the Ontario high school system was enacted in 1999 by the provincial government. Prior to this time, students could graduate high school by completing 30 credits: taking eight credits per year for the first three years and then six Ontario Academic Credits (OACs) in grade twelve, a student could, if he or she chose, complete their high school degree in four years. However, the majority of high school students chose to complete their degrees in five years and take more than 30 credits, since a four-year program typically did not allow the student enough time to take all of the courses he or she would like."
