Bryce Stuart Mackasey (Minister of Manpower and Immigration)

Liberal

Hon. Bryce Mackasey (Minister of Manpower and Immigration):

No. Section 48(2) of the Unemployment Insurance Act, 1971, provides that Unemployment Insurance benefits may be assigned to a province or municipal authority in order to reimburse that province or municipal authority for the amount of welfare payments it makes to a person, which welfare payments would not have been made if the Unemployment Insurance benefits to which he is entitled were then in pay.

A number of provinces are completing assignments as authorized by Section 48(2), and the Unemployment Insurance Commission is presently working with the remaining provinces in developing the procedures that will facilitate the extension of the assignment of benefits to all provinces wishing to participate in the program. However, the government has definitely not requested provincial welfare departments to contact claimants to have them assign their Unemployment Insurance benefits.

The cost of the interest subsidy will be shared between the city and CMHC.
