Mr. Caccia:

-attributing to us an approach that we certainly do not accept. It is not our approach in the carrying out of our duties.

Mr. Chas L. Caccia (Parliamentary Secretary to Minister of Manpower and Immigration):

Mr. Speaker, we are grateful to the hon. member for raising this problem persistently over an extended period of time. I can understand his frustration and his desire to see a satisfactory solution. We should like to assure him, Mr. Speaker, that it is certainly not a question of subservience vis-a-vis the United States or timidity on our part. If it has taken so long it is because the issue is rather complex. It was initially a question of obtaining from the United States a certain degree of reciprocity and now, since this avenue has been explored, it is a question of deciding whether we want to adopt similar criteria and standards of screening work permits to those adopted by the United States vis-a-vis our performers.

We are studying this matter in the department and are well aware of the fact that the entrance into Canada of U.S. performers also generates a certain amount of employment for supporting crews and staff in the service industry. Therefore we would like to arrive at a decision which will not cut off our nose to spite our face.

Mr. Charles L. Caccia (Parliamentary Secretary to Minister of Manpower and Immigration):

Mr. Speaker, the points raised by the hon. member for Vancouver-Kingsway (Mrs. Maclnnis) can hardly be dealt with in the short time allocated this evening. If the hon. member has some alternative suggestions for renaming the present Manpower services, we would be interested in examining her ideas.

With regard to the three-year clause, the hon. member has a very valid point which the department has made an object of study. Something ought to be done about

June 3, 1971

assisting women who wish to re-enter the labour force after having performed a very valuable function in society at home.

With regard to occupational segregation by sex in Manpower training courses, this could not be ascribed to wilful discrimination by the department. There must he reasons of an educational nature or of a practical nature. However, if the hon. member wishes us to investigate whether there are ways to improve the training courses she has in mind, and the possibility of offering other types of courses to women trainees, we will be glad to do so. But basically, when on May 14 the hon. member inquired why so many more men are judged to be helped by training courses than women, the answer is that it is because there are many more men who apply at Canada Manpower centres for assistance and training courses. Approximately 67 per cent of all those who apply at Canada Manpower centres are men, compared with 33 per cent who are women.

This alone gives an indication of the greater utilization of Manpower centres by men. From this follows the fact that the number of men referred for training represents 74.5 per cent, compared with 25.5 per cent for women. Again, this is a reflection of the clientele breakdown between men and women. The present figure of 25.5 per cent is an improvement over the figure of 22.7 per cent in 19-68-69.
