The relevant collective agreement refers to the collective agreement of the bargaining unit to which the legitimate worker is or would currently be assigned if the worker were not an excluded worker. For the Personnel Administration Group (PE), the Organisation and Methodology Group (OM) and the Trainee Management Group (MM), the corresponding collective agreement is that applicable to the Programme Management Group (PM); A major challenge for labour market programming is the harmonisation of the benefits and actions of the Federal Bundes and Part II and provincial competences. Better orientation should improve service to Alberta clients who require employment programs and services. Over the next three years, the particular challenges are as follows: the EI Act and the Proposal on Provinces and Territories for Labour Market Regulations explicitly refer to the necessary outcomes and the need for an evaluation of monitoring, evaluation and evaluation results. In this Annex, Canada and Alberta set these mutually agreed outcome targets. In 1996, the unemployment insurance system was renamed Employment Insurance (EI) and reformed to recognize two components: first, the income allowance for unemployed persons who had paid EI premiums; and, second, to offer a number of employment programmes to the unemployed in order to prepare them to return to work quickly. The Employment Insurance Act also gave provinces and territories the opportunity to implement these training programs.  The initial MDAAs date back to the beginning of the process of transferring labour market training to the provinces in 1996. The first bilateral agreement was signed with Alberta in December 1996 and implemented in November 1997. The integration of all provinces and territories was a long process, culminating in budget 2007`s recognition that provinces and territories have primary responsibility for the development and implementation of labour market training programs, as well as the signing of the last bilateral agreements until 2010.
 Through these agreements, the Government of Canada is ensuring that there are more programs than before, particularly people from groups that are generally under-represented in our workforce, such as persons with disabilities, women and Indigenous peoples. For example, programs such as the Aboriginal Training to Employment Program, persons with Developmental Disabilities Employties Preparation and Placement Supports-Programme and Women Building Futures – which helps more women develop their careers in the craft industry – are again funded by the agreements announced today. . . .
