Mr. Ray Perrault (Parliamentary Secretary to Minister of Manpower and Immigration):

Agency Relations consultants of the Department of Manpower and Immigration are employed in the Department's Regional Offices, and are engaged in the development and maintainance of working relationships with other Federal and Provincial Departments, with Private Organizations and Professional Groups involved in the provision of vocational rehabilitation services to disadvantaged workers.

They provide advice to these Departments and Agencies on the use of the services and programs of the Department of Manpower and Immigration and they coordinate plans for the development of cooperative efforts leading to increase employability of disadvantaged clients of Canada Manpower Centres.

These programs and services may be implemented through such instruments as the Canada Assistance Plan, Vocational Rehabilitation of Disabled Persons Agreements, or in cooperation with private and voluntary organizations such as The Canadian Association for the Mentally Retarded, and the Canadian Hearing Society.

These consultants also provide advice and guidance to Canada Manpower Centres in the delivery of Manpower Services to disadvantaged clients. This includes the development of working arrangements with appropriate public or private agencies for the referral of such clients in order to receive rehabilitation services leading to placement in employment.

Under the Claimant Assistance Program of the Unemployment Insurance Commission, Guidance Officers at each District Office are required to establish and maintain close liaison with job placement, job training, and social development agencies operated by different levels of government and by public organizations within their respective areas, so that referral of claimants may be made to the appropriate agency based on mutually acceptable criteria.
