Mr. Peter Elzinga (Pembina):
Madam Speaker, in view of the fact that the skilled labour shortage is a prime concern facing many in the small business community throughout Canada, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Bow River (Mr. Taylor):
That the federal Minister of Employment initiate discussions with his provincial counterparts so that apprentices could take part of their training in other provinces, and develop laws and programs for licensing apprentices that are consistent throughout Canada in providing for a continuing program in the event of lay-off, closing of the sponsoring firm, or a move to another province by the apprentice's family.
