Using educational attainment as a marker of societal status attainment, this paper looks at the effects of ethnic origin and class origin on status attainment. The authors also look at the effects of ethnicity and class origin on educational attainment. The results indicate that there is still evidence to support John Porter's famous mosaic theory, which depicted a Canadian society in 1965 in which many factors contributed to status attainment, but all of which were overruled by the effects of ethnocultural discrimination. The authors also discuss these results in the context of future research and action.
