Mr. Speaker, we recognize that some older workers are having problems when they are laid off. We do understand that. We know also that people are working longer and are retiring later.
The government has had a number of projects. I would mention in particular the investment of $50 million in the older workers pilot projects initiative which concludes this year.
I am pleased to advise all members in the House that this initiative was recently extended to 2006 and enriched by $5 million.
