Bill 70 – An Act to allow a better match between training and jobs and to facilitate labour market entry

Corps

The Québec Ombudsman presented its brief on Bill 70, An Act to allow a better match between training and jobs and to facilitate labour market entry, to the Committee on Labour and the Economy.

The Québec Ombudsman subscribes to the need for measures to ensure a better fit between training and jobs, the subject of Part I of Bill 70.

While it also agrees with the principle of the Aim for Employment Program, Part II of Bill 70, aimed at fostering greater participation in the labour market, it nonetheless has serious reservations about the Program’s application.

“The Aim for Employment Program will only work if it truly takes into account every participant’s needs and leads to sustainable employment,” says Ombudsperson Raymonde Saint-Germain.
