Mr. Speaker, the employment insurance program is there to help those who have been unfortunate enough to lose their jobs through no fault of their own and give them some financial support while they look for another job. That is what the program is designed to do, but we are also taking one step further in helping Canadians identify the jobs that are available within their area and their skill set. If those jobs do not exist, EI will continue to be there for those people.
