Briefing Package: Labour Market Transfers and the Implications for Literacy and Essential Skills (2011)

This report provides background material for understanding labour market transfers from the federal government and, in particular, for understanding the implications of one specific transfer, the Labour Market Agreement (LMA), for literacy organizations across Canada.

The LMA provides funding for training adults who are not eligible for Employment Insurance (EI), focusing on both the employed and unemployed who have low literacy levels and Essential Skills.

The author discusses the problems in determining actual LMA spending, as many provincial annual reports do not provide specific spending amounts. Also, accountability and evaluation in the LMA process are in need of improvement.

As well as explaining different labour market tools, the author analyzes the key elements of the LMAs from a literacy and Essential Skills perspective and provides general questions that could be asked of the various governments.

The final section of the report is customized for each province and territory, meaning that there are in effect 13 different versions of the report.
