8.3 The Joint Evaluation Committee will oversee the development of an evaluation framework that includes short-, medium- and long-term evaluations and links qualitative measures to short-term outcomes to determine medium- and long-term effects and effects. Canada and Manitoba also agree that designated officials will approve the evaluation framework and funding requirements proposed by the Joint Evaluation Committee. The reinvestment of reform savings will take place in all provinces and territories. This funding will be made available to provinces and territories that will assume greater responsibility for the labour market. The main objective is to ensure that part of the savings from the EI reform is invested in „active“ re-employment measures, in order to enable individuals, employers and communities to adapt to the new EI system (especially those most affected by the reform); and, to a lesser extent, recognize the need to reduce the level of cross-subsidy between regions. These funds are allocated so that the net impact of EI reform in 2001-2002 is relatively similar in the provinces and the net impact in the net contributing provinces is at least one percentage lower than the net impact level in the net recipient provinces. The reinvestment of reform savings for the years prior to 2001-2002 is on the same percentage basis as in 2001/2002. I hope that this information will be useful and help to support a full examination of Mr Young`s proposal. We look forward to working with you on new labour market rules. 3.3 As indicated in point 16.1 of the Agreement, results-oriented objectives for the financial years 1997-1998 have been mutually agreed and set out in an annual annex. Objectives are defined taking into account local labour market realities and opportunities, individual client needs, community and partnership capacity, and program mix. 4.2 Canada and Manitoba agree to cooperate to establish formal links between the Parties in order to facilitate and coordinate the operation of local, provincial and national labour exchange systems and the production and dissemination of local, provincial and national labour market information. With respect to Manitoba`s desire to expand its role in the design and delivery of labour market development programs and services in Manitoba, Canada (by the Canada Employment Commission) and with the agreement of the Canadian Minister of Personnel Development, it is authorized, pursuant to section 63 of the Employment Act, to enter into an agreement with Manitoba on the payment of contributions for: This project implements and tests an intervention that uses an innovative approach to engage and motivate Income Assistance (AI) clients to use placement services in British Columbia to improve their availability and participation in the labour market.
