Hon. Pauline Browes (Minister of State (Employment and Immigration)):

Madam Speaker, I would like to bring to the attention of the hon. member that some

944,000 more women are working today than in 1984. Between 1984 and 1992 the number of working women in managerial and administrative positions climbed 85 per cent. These positions accounted for 31 per cent of all jobs created for women between 1984 and 1992.

I think that is very good news in terms of women being in administrative and managerial positions.

Hon. Pauline Browes (Minister of State (Employment and Immigration)):

Madam Speaker, the news of unemployed Canadians is never one that we are accepting. We are working very diligently in order to get people back to work. I would like to bring a number of indicators to the member's attention.

One is that the manpower temporary services survey showed that 21 per cent of those firms surveyed planned to hire people in July and August.

There are 116,000 more Canadians working now than there were last year. The help wanted index has taken the biggest leap in six years. Unemployment insurance claims have decreased 18 per cent in the last quarter from last year. There are some good indicators of how things are going in terms of people getting back to work.

Hon. Pauline Browes (Minister of State (Employment and Immigration)):

Madam Speaker, besides the Challenge '93 project which is some $88 million in terms of getting young people back to work and some 400 youth employment centres across Canada, we have put in place student business loans for young people to start businesses, the business drive for jobs in partnership with the Canadian Manufacturers' Association and federal hiring of students within our own government projects.

I am very pleased with the number of young people who have decided to start their own businesses. In North America we have the first youth centre, New Ventures, for young people to begin their own jobs. That is the kind of work that we are doing in terms of young people getting jobs by starting their own businesses.

Hon. Pauline Browes (Minister of State (Employment and Immigration)):

Madam Speaker, I am very pleased to have an opportunity to respond to the question on behalf of the Minister of State for Youth and as the Minister of State for Employment and Immigration.

I think the hon. member has missed a lot in the last few years. We have put in place a stay-in-school project for young people to get information on getting skills and training. We have also put in place literacy programs, the sectoral councils and the apprenticeship programs working with the provinces. With the youth employment that has been put in place in terms of 179,000 jobs last year under the Challenge '92 program and the increase of $5 million for 1993 for youth employment, I think the record shows that we have done a great deal in terms of assistance for youth.
