- The current HRDC priorities for funding are: women, youth, aboriginal people, people with disabilities;
- The current HRDC practice provides no resources to assist new Canadians to fully participate in the Canadian labour market;
- These policies are designed to assist disadvantaged populations to enter the mainstream labour market;
- The integration of newcomers to the Canadian labour market requires a head start equal to that of the already identified groups;
Therefore be it resolved
That CCR contact the minister responsible for HRDC and urge that the HRDC recognize as a priority group newcomers to Canada to ensure their full participation into the Canadian labour market.
