Mr. Speaker, our government's top priority is job creation, economic growth and long-term prosperity.
Canada's economic action plan highlighted that we will be introducing new ways to further assist Canadians claiming EI to find jobs and help get them back to work.
The opposition is fear-mongering that these changes will force Canadians to uproot and move away to find jobs. This is simply not true.
In fact, we are increasing our efforts to ensure Canadians are made aware of the jobs available in their local areas, as well as providing incentives for taking all available work in their local community.
Our government recognizes that Canadians want to work. We are working to provide families with the tools they need to find gainful and meaningful employment in their communities.
