CONFIDENTIAL – NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION- 4 As of Jan., 1, 2007, Ontario’s integrated training and employment system will deliver the provincial labour market programs (offered by LMTD) and the Service Canada programs transferring under the LMDA. Ontario’s planning process must in time integrate and replace existing federal and provincial program-specific processes The integration of federal and provincial programs provides Ontario with the opportunity to: −improve service to clients, through effective program delivery and better linkages between programs; −develop a consistent approach to local labour market planning which supports provincial priorities, while reflecting regional sensitivity for the mix and blend of programs/services and other unique local priorities; and −implement a model of local labour market planning that reflects the Ministry’s commitment to local or decentralized decision-making. The ‘Drivers’
CONFIDENTIAL – NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION- 5 The LMDA includes explicit program planning requirements related to the delivery of employment benefits and measures (EBSMs): With the LMDA, Ontario agreed to: Integrated local planning involving stakeholders such as employers, unions, training institutions, Ontario Works Service managers, Service Canada offices, Service Ontario offices, local groups and associations, to ensure that each community gets services tailored to meet its needs and that mutual priorities can be identified and communicated. (Annex 3, s3.7) Set EBSM targets for and each fiscal year thereafter that are mutually agreed upon by Ontario and Canada (LMDA s8.2), to establish mechanisms to set these targets jointly (s8.3) and, when setting these targets, to take into consideration local, regional and provincial economic and labour market circumstances [and] the results achieved in the previous year” (s8.4) and the local level labour market realities and opportunities, individual clients needs, community/partnership capacity and program mix (Annex 5, s3.3) Ensure that the annual plan Ontario develops to meet these EBSM targets is “informed by local plans developed in consultation with local Service Canada offices, Ontario Works and other sources” (Annex 4, Section bii). Submit its EBSMs program plan to the federal government for the last quarter of fiscal year no later than October 1, 2006; for each subsequent fiscal year, submit this plan no later than three months prior to the beginning of the fiscal year to which it relates. (s3.2) Ensure an integrated approach to labour market programming between the LMDA and the LMPA (Annex 4, Section j). The ‘Drivers’ (continued)
