In addition to the foregoing expenditures, the dominion has paid to the province under the provisions of The Relief Act, 1933 the sum of S9.890.87 for work undertaken on the Maniwaki-Mont Laurier and Senneterre highway, but certificates of expenditure rendered by the province do not indicate what proportion of the expenditure was made in the county of Pontiac.

The amount of the grant-in-aid allocated to the different sections by the province is not however a matter of record with the dominion.

EMPLOYMENT STATISTICS, MONTREAL


Mr. LAITR'JN: 1. How many establishments in Montreal have reported to the dominion bureau of statistics on the number of people employed by them? 2. How many of said establishments employ more than 25 persons? 3. What are the names of said firms or establishments? 4. How many employees are employed in each of said establishments?


CON

Mr. HANSON (York-Sunbury): (Minister of Trade and Commerce)

Conservative (1867-1942)

1. Assuming that industrial establishments are meant, 2,226 industrial establishments, employing 80,212 persons, reported to the dominion bureau of statistics in Montreal proper in 1933. With regard to merchandising and service establishments, the 1931 census showed that there were 17,602 such establishments employing 78,187 persons.

2. The number of industrial establishments which have 25 employees and over is compiled for Canada as a whole and by provinces, but not by localities. It would take considerable time to get the figure for Montreal, as the individual returns are filed by industries, not by cities and towns.

3 and 4. The dominion bureau of statistics is unable under the secrecy clause of the Statistics Act to give out any information relating to an individual concern.
