This is a quantitative study that describes the proﬁle of adolescents in independent living in Halton Region by their occupational status. Occupational status is a variable that ranges along a continuum, from adolescents who are in school fulltime & working part-time, in school fulltime, working fulltime, in school part-time & working part-time, in school part-time, working part-time, and not in school or working. Information for adolescent proﬁles was obtained from case ﬁles, as well as from the Vineland Adaptive Behaviour Scale which was completed by adolescents’ social workers. It is expected that these proﬁles will assist social workers in identifying potential predictors of adolescent occupational status in independent living. Hence, areas requiring further skill development, prior to an adolescent leaving care, were identiﬁed. Implications for agency planning were discussed.
