Labour Market Advisory Committee
Mandate       

The Advisory Committee is fully aware of the constraints and needs of the at-risk underemployed individuals and are therefore better placed to provide notices and recommendations to the CPMT, the Ministère de l’Emploi et de la Solidarité sociale et l’Agence Emploi-Québec regarding measures and services to provide or develop so that this clientele can improve their status and employability to gain access to and sustain employment. These notices are well within the mission and responsibilities of these three major organizations.

The Advisory Committee is also the spokesperson for promoting the interests of their First Nation and Inuit clients who are isolated from the labour market and for supporting their employment, their integration, reintegration or sustainability through notices and recommendations. This specific clientele requires public employment services, intervention or social solidarity services due to their personal situation regarding the labour market, the existence of obstacles or limitations, the social condition of the individual, the requirements and conditions of the labour market, the individul’s social development, the available resources and the accompaniment necessary to reintegrate the labour market. In this respect, the committee can:

➢ Propose new action pathways, strategies, attempt or implement initiatives in the various manpower and employment areas

➢ Propose sub-groups requiring the assistance of the public employment services according to their issues

➢ Participate in the follow-up and evaluation of the various intervention methods utilized.
