moved for leave to introduce Bill C-285, an act to provide for the establishment of national standards for labour market training, apprenticeship and certification.

Madam Speaker, the bill I am introducing today seeks to address the serious skill shortages that exist around the country. It seeks to create national standards for training curriculums in all skilled trades and to create a national training advisory committee for each one of those trades to be peopled by labour and management representatives to aid in the standardization and the harmonization of training curriculum, entrance requirements and the ultimate certification of those skilled workers.

The bill also seeks to give the right to those national training committees to have some control over the spending of moneys in those skilled trade fields.
