Mr. Peter Elzinga (Pembina):
Madam Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. To meet the shortage of skilled workers in Canada, and in view of the fact that at present most training costs for an apprentice fall on the training company and many firms do not have apprenticeship or on-the-job training programs because they are too costly, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Red Deer (Mr. Towers):
That the federal government institute a fairer plan for paying for facilities, instructors and equipment, and since the early stage of apprenticeship is a kind of post-secondary education and is vital to the economy, that the federal government pay a greater share of this training.
