Virtually all full-time training in Ontario is done through the Ontario Colleges of Applied Arts and Technology. The following data covers all full-time skill training, for Ontario. Trainee and cost figures (Nos. 1-4) are by fiscal year, 1972-73 to 1976-77; trainee follow-up data (No. 5) is by calendar year, 1972 to 1975. (1) The number of trainees who started training

Order Paper Questions

for each year is as follows: 1972-73: 16,864; 1973-74: 17,203;

1974- 75: 17,316; 1975-76: 20,337; 1976-77: 18,337 (Preliminary, as at March 31, 1977).

(2) The average Purchase Costs per Trainee were: 1972-73: $1,338 (Based on Estimated Purchase Costs); 1973-74: $1,194 (Based on Estimated Purchase Costs); 1974-75: $1,522 (Based on Estimated Purchase Costs); 1975-76: $1,477; 1976-77: $1,651 (Preliminary, as at March 31, 1977).

(3) The average Allowances paid per Trainee were: 1972-73: $1,220; 1973-74: $1,186; 1974-75: $1,216; 1975-76: $1,344; 1976-77: $1,550 (Preliminary, as at March 31, 1977).

(4) The number of Trainees who Discontinued training each year was: 1972-73: 4,997; 1973-74: 5,102; 1974-75: 5,475;

1975- 76: 6,301; 1976-77: 5,198 (Preliminary, as at March 31, 1977).

(5) This information is not directly available, since graduates are not required to seek subsequent employment through a Canada Manpower Centre. The information available is from a continuing 100 per cent survey of skill course graduates which shows:

Percentage of Skill Graduates Employed

Before Training After Training

1972 12.7 72.41973 14.1 73.01974 14.4 71.31975 12.7 65.51976 N/A N/A

The same survey shows that 74.8 per cent of those employed in 1975 are employed in a two-digit CCDO occupation which corresponds with the two-digit CCDO occupation assigned to their skill course. This is not a reliable indicator of whether persons are employed in the field for which they are trained because, for instance, a person trained in agricultural technology (agricultural occupation) may utilize his or her training as a sales representative for a feed company (sales occupation).

1. (a) (i) $5,487.00; (ii) $5,487.00; (b) Nil; (c) Nil. The following newspapers were used for both the Canada Works and the Young Canada Works programmes' advertising.

Acton Free Press, P.O. Box 120, Acton, Ontario; Burlington Gazette, 490 Brant Street, Burlington, Ontario; Caledonia Grand River Sachem, P.O. Box 160, Caledonia, Ontario; Grimsby Independent, P.O. Box 310, Grimsby, Ontario; Oakville Journal Record, 284 Lakeshore Blvd., E., Oakville, Ontario; Calvinist & Contact, 99 Niagara Street, St. Catharines, Ontario; Pioneer, 201 Paradise Road N., Hamilton, Ontario; Hamilton Spectator, 44 Frid Street, Hamilton, Ontario; Kanadski Srbobran, 335 Britania Avenue, Hamilton, Ontario.

2. (a) (i) $100,000; (ii) $296,000; (iii) $364,000; (iv) $100,000; (v) $100,000; (vi) $50,000; (b) (i) $59,000; (ii) $239,000; (iii) $140,000; (iv) $57,000; (v) $44,000; (vi) $44,000.

3. 1977/78 Canada Works program-Phase I: The 1977/78 Canada Works program-Phase I funds were distributed to the above constituencies as follows: Initial Allocation: (1) Estimates of labour force, labour surplus and a labour surplus rate were derived for each constituency for the period December, 1975 to November, 1976. (2) Based on these data $50,000 was allocated to those constituencies with a labour surplus rate below 5 per cent; therefore, Halton received $50,000. (3) A basic allocation of $100,000 was distributed to those constituencies with a labour surplus rate of 5 per cent to 7 per cent; therefore, Hamilton-Wentworth, Hamilton-Mountain and Halton-Wentworth each received $100,000. (4) Constituencies with a labour surplus rate over 7 per cent received a basic allocation of $100,000 and a per capita allocation based on their labour surplus in excess of 7 per cent of their labour force. All such constituencies received $187.33 for each person estimated in the excess labour surplus group. Thus, Hamilton West received a basic allocation of $100,000 and a per capita allocation of $83,000 on the basis of an excess labour surplus of 442. Hamilton East was granted a basic allocation of $100,000 and a per capita allocation of $112,000 on the basis of an excess labour suplus of 600. Supplementary Allocation: The supplementary funds were distributed in direct proportion to the per capita segment of the initial allocations. Thus, basic allocations were excluded from consideration in allocating the supplementary funds. On this basis, Hamilton-Wentworth, Hamilton-Mountain, Halton-Wentworth and Halton received no supplementary funds. The relevant data for the constituencies of Hamilton-Wentworth, Hamilton West, Hamilton East, Hamilton Mountain, Halton-Wentworth and Halton are:

cies as follows: Initial Allocation: (1) Estimates of labour force, labour surplus and labour surplus rates were derived for each constituency for the period May, 1976 to August 1976, for the 15-24 age group. (2) A basic allocation of $25,000 was made to those constituencies with a labour surplus rate of 10 per cent or less; therefore, Halton-Wentworth and Halton each received $25,000. (3) Constituencies with a labour surplus rate over 10 per cent received the basic allocation of $25,000 and a per capita allocation based on their labour surplus in excess of 10 per cent of their labour force. All such constituencies received $171.47 for each person estimated in the excess labour surplus group. Thus, (i) Hamilton-Wentworth was granted a basic allocation of $25,000 and a per capita allocation of $34,000 on the basis of an excess labour surplus of 198; (ii) Elamilton West was granted a basic allocation of $25,000 and a per capita allocation of $ 110,000 on the basis of an excess labour surplus of 643; (iii) Hamilton East was granted a basic allocation of $25,000 and a per capita allocation of $115,000 on the basis of an excess labour surplus of 668; and (iv) Hamilton-Mountain was granted a basic allocation of $25,000 and a per capita allocation of $7,000 based on an excess labour surplus of 42. Supplementary Allocations: The supplementary funds were distributed in direct proportion to the total funds distributed to a constituency in the initial allocation.

Under the Adult Occupational Training Act, there are two programs: the Canada Manpower Training Program (CMTP) and the Canada Manpower Industrial Training Program (CMITP).

Data on follow-up of trainees (part 3.) is available, by calendar year 1972 to 1975, for CMTP only.

1. On October 8, 1976, was a letter by Mr. Michel Fortin, Regional Director of Staff Relations of the Unemployment Insurance Commission in Quebec, addressed to the Quebec president of the union of employees of the UIC (ESENA-PSAC-QFL), apologizing for the fact that he had been escorted by security guards when, having been suspended for his union activities by the Department, he was on his way to defend grievances at 1441 St-Urbain Street in Montreal?

2. On February 23, 1977 or thereabouts, although Mr. Goyette had been dismissed, but was still President of the Union under the Public Service Staff Relations Act and the constitution of the PSAC, was he again escorted by security guards acting on orders given by Mr. Fortin, on his way to the same place to defend grievances?

3. On September 29, 1976, at the time of Mr. Goyette's suspension for union activities, did Mr. Claude Rouleau, a Staff Relations agent, acting under orders of Mr. Fortin, try to convince local agents and members of the union who had submitted grievances to take their case out of Mr. Goyette's hands?

4. In spite of the letter of apology sent by Mr. Fortin on October 8, 1976, did Mr. Rouleau try again to convince agents and members of the union to take their case out of Mr. Goyette's hands, with such insistence that the Quebec local of the union complained of intimidation and harrassment, particularly during a press conference with the QFL?
