1 Review of Labour Market Development Agreement (LMDA) Funded Initiatives (October 23, 2012) LMDA Objectives Provincial/Territorial governments and the Government of Canada have two types of agreements to deliver labour market training programs and services: Labour Market Development Agreements (LMDA) are designed for individuals who are eligible for Employment Insurance (EI) to assist them prepare for and maintain employment. LMDAs also are intended to result in savings to the EI account. Labour Market Agreements (LMA) are designed to increase the labour market participation of under-represented groups who are not EI eligible and to improve the skill levels of unemployed individuals and employed individuals who are low skilled. Labour Market Agreements complement Labour Market Development Agreements, which fund labour market programs and services for unemployed Canadians who meet the definition of an insured participant and are eligible for EI benefits. "Labour Market Development Agreements are funded under the legislative authority of Part II of the Employment Insurance Act, which lays out a framework for Active Employment Measures that: are results-based (help individuals obtain and keep employment); reduce individuals' dependency on government assistance; promote cooperation and partnership with other labour market partners, such as governments, employers, and community-based organizations; feature local decision-making; eliminate unnecessary overlap and duplication of labour market programming; encourage individuals to take personal responsibility for getting back to work; and, ensure service to the public in either official language, where there is significant demand." 1 Under the LMDAs, provinces and territories determine the priorities for funding and decide how the funding is allocated in order to meet the needs of their particular labour markets. Provincial and territorial governments are responsible for, as per their respective LMDAs, delivering employment and training programs and services to EI-eligible individuals, planning and reporting, and information sharing. HRSDC is responsible for providing guidance and interpretation on LMDA and program eligibility and for information sharing as per the terms of the agreements. The intent of the agreements is to increase the labour market participation of under-represented groups, including Aboriginal Canadians, immigrants, persons with disabilities, and to assist lowskilled workers improve their literacy and essential skills. 1 Labour Market Development Agreements, Human Resources and Skills Development Canada: 1

2 LMDA Spending The Government of Canada invests $1.95 billion annually in provincial and territorial programs for unemployed Canadians through the LMDAs. For the two fiscal years 2009/10 and 2010/11, LMDA funding was increased by $1 billion ($500 million per year) through the Government of Canada's Economic Action Plan. An additional $500 million for training ($250 million per year) was provided for the Strategic Training and Transition Fund (STTF). STTF funding was administered through F-P/T Labour Market Agreements (LMAs). Results targets Under the terms of the LMDAs, the lead agency for the Provincial/Territorial government and HRSDC establish annual, mutually agreed upon results targets. These targets include the following: the number of active claimants to be served; the number of EI participants anticipated to return to work following intervention; and, the savings to the EI account as a result of participation in programs and services and subsequent return to work. Employment Benefits and Support Measures (EBSM) Test of Similarity Under Section 63 of the Employment Insurance (EI) Act, the Canada Employment Insurance Commission has the legislative authority to enter into agreements with provinces, territories and other bodies, such as Aboriginal organizations, to provide EI Part II funding for programs that are similar to the Employment Benefits and Support Measures (EBSMs) established by the Commission. (EBSMs are listed below for reference). HRSDC has legislative authority to reimburse only the costs of programs that have been determined to be similar to the EBSMs. HRSDC has standardized a process for determining whether a P/T's programs are similar to the EBSMs established by the Commission and whether they can be funded under a transfer through a Labour Market Development Agreement (LMDA). The LMDA agreements also provide a process for sharing information and best practices about programs, the objective being to contribute to the improvement of LMDA-funded programs. For example, LMDA signatories agree that the development and linking of electronic on-line systems is an essential tool for effective and efficient client information management. Employment Benefits include the following: Targeted Wage Subsidies - assist insured participants to obtain on-the-job work experience by providing employers with financial assistance toward the wages of participants. Self-Employment - provides financial assistance and business planning advice to EIeligible participants to help them start their own business. Job Creation Partnerships - projects provide insured participants with opportunities to gain work experience that will lead to ongoing employment. Skills Development - helps insured participants to obtain employment skills by giving them direct financial assistance for their own training. Targeted Earnings Supplements - encourage unemployed persons to accept employment by offering them financial incentives. 2

3 Support Measures include the following: Employment Assistance Services - provide funding to organizations to enable them to provide employment assistance to unemployed persons. Labour Market Partnerships - provide funding to help employers, employee and employer associations, and communities to improve their capacity to deal with human resource requirements and to implement labour force adjustments. Research and Innovation - supports activities that identify better ways of helping people to prepare for or keep employment and to be productive participants in the labour force. LMDA reporting There are accountability frameworks for the two types of agreements. The federal government, through Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC), and Provincial/Territorial governments typically have a single planning process for their LMDAs and LMAs to reduce overlap and duplication and to simplify the review and approval process. Labour Market Agreements specify that provincial and territorial governments publish their annual LMA plans, which most do on the website of the responsible department or agency. The LMDAs do not contain a similar provision for provinces and territories to publish their LMDA plans. Several provinces and territories publish annual integrated LMA and LMDA plans on their websites: British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Nova Scotia, Yukon, NWT and Nunavut. 2 Because provinces and territories receiving LMDA funding may deliver EBSM-similar programming using different names, HRSDC does not provide administrative data on pan- Canadian activities. HRSDC further states that inter-jurisdictional comparisons may be misleading because of differences in programming and labour market conditions. Reporting limitations and gaps Provinces and territories are not required to produce LMDA annual plans and reports that are as detailed as LMA plans and reports. Some provinces provide little or no information about LMDA-funded programs, activities and results. For provinces that publish integrated LMDA and LMA annual plans, it can be difficult to distinguish between LMDA-funded and LMA-funding activities. It is difficult for anyone but the experienced reader to understand the definitions of terms and categories used to present LMDA-funded programs, activities and results. There are inconsistencies in the numbers of EI "clients served" in the HRSDC reports and the LMDA results measures reports of some provincial governments. The reasons for these inconsistencies are not apparent. If, for example, the numbers are based on different types of clients, this is not clear. Information on training and skills development programs (e.g., spending, activities, results) typically is presented at a very high level only. 2 Emploi-Québec also publishes its annual action plan. 3

4 The timing of release of reports on annual plans and performance measures varies considerably by province. No information is published on the types of previous employment (e.g., sector/industry) of EI clients receiving LMDA-funded training or other benefits or services. Very little information is published on the types of LMDA-funded training provided (e.g., level of training, occupations of apprenticeship trainees). Outstanding questions of interest to the residential construction industry Following are some questions for provincial governments that reflect CHBA interests in skills training. Where is the money going? What specific programs and initiatives are undertaken in [province] with LMDA funding? What are the objectives, level of spending and activities associated with each program and initiative? What are the results and impacts of these programs? What is the evidence for these results and impacts? What specific types of skills training are supported by LMDA funding (e.g., apprenticeship)? Is any LMDA-funded skills training related to the residential construction industry (e.g., apprenticeship training in construction trades)? If LMDA funding is used to support apprenticeship training, does it cover both Red Seal trades and provincially-designated, non-red Seal trades? What are the results of skills training programs, for example, the number of clients who complete their training? What types of LMDA-funded employment benefits and support measures are available to clients who want to undertake training and/or pursue a career in the residential construction industry? What are the opportunities for the CHBA to participate in LMDA-funded labour market partnerships? What are the steps that must be taken to participate? How can our industry get more detailed information from the [province] government about LMDA-funded skills training and other services, for example, website links, consultations with representatives of the responsible department/agency? 4

The first priority of the jobshere plan is "Learning the right skills for good jobs". To achieve this priority, Nova Scotia integrates LMDA and LMA resources ($80.2 million LMDA and $20 million LMA for ) to implement a new workforce strategy designed for the following: Attract and retain immigrants as skilled workers and entrepreneurs. Encourage young people to stay in school and facilitate transitions from high school to post-secondary education (college and university) and the labour force. Encourage post-secondary graduates to stay and work in the province. Adapt our education and training programs to a changing labour market. Retain older workers in the labour force. Expand participation in the labour force by members of disadvantaged our marginalized communities. Expand access to basic education, high school completion, and skills enhancement programs for adults inside and outside the labour force. Programs - Employment Nova Scotia offers the following Employment Benefits and Support Measures: 12

18 Skills Development - an employment program that provides financial assistance to unemployed eligible participants who need to learn additional basic to advanced skills development training to help find work. Skills Up! - an employment program that provides financial assistance to non-ei eligible African Nova Scotians (who have not attached to the labour market) to obtain the skills training they need for employment. Seasonal Feepayer - an employment program that allows laid off workers to invest in their own training if they choose and continue to draw out their regular Employment Insurance benefits while in training. Since these workers will not receive additional financial support for their training-related costs, they are referred to as "feepayers." Feepayer - an employment program that offers unemployed eligible participants an opportunity to attend training while they still qualify to receive their regular Employment Insurance (EI) benefits. Participants must be prepared to pay your own training expenses. Job Creation Partnerships - an employment program designed to support projects that will provide eligible participants with meaningful work experience that will improve their employment prospects. START Program - an employment program that encourages employers to hire Nova Scotians requiring work experience or apprenticeship support resulting in good jobs for Nova Scotians and good employees for employers. Targeted Wage Subsidies - an employment program that helps unemployed eligible participants to obtain employment where they can enhance their skills and improve their employability by providing eligible employers with a financial incentive to hire them. Self Employment - an employment program that provides entrepreneurial support and financial assistance to eligible unemployed participants starting their own business. Employment Assistance Services - an employment program that provides funding to organizations to assist unemployed individuals prepare for, obtain and maintain employment.

19 Comments and caveats: "EBSMs are currently not effectively geared towards increasing employers human resource capacity to recruit, hire, and retain workers in a demand-rich labour market. It will also become important to raise awareness among employers, particularly small and medium sized enterprises, about the effects of a changing labour market and their need for greater flexibility in requirements when recruiting and retaining workers from LMDA and LMA priority client groups. Nova Scotia will explore new, more effective ways to engage both employers and prospective employees and assist them in meeting their labour market needs". (LMDA/LMA Annual Plan, p. 21) 14
