Canada and Nova Scotia are supporting the creation of a cohesive system to be created in Nova Scotia that will be based on managing the labour market challenges facing employers and workers across Nova Scotia. 3.1 Canada and Nova Scotia agree to develop a common labour market information strategy that will define how each party will work on the collection, analysis, production, dissemination and use of local, provincial and national labour market information to support economic progress. The results are important. This is why these agreements involve an obligation to measure performance. This means that Canada and Nova Scotia will be able to measure how programs increase people`s incomes, help them get time-long jobs, and remove barriers for under-represented groups such as Aboriginal people, people with disabilities and women. The Canadian government will report to Canadians on the impact of these programs so that they are transparent and can be continually improved. This appendix provides the parties` consistent opinion on the indicators to be used to measure benefit and action results for NS, the process of setting targets for annual results, and annual results reports. 7.5 Nova Scotia is committed to complying with all section 7.4 grant agreements that Canada has signed with recipients that end after the date Nova Scotia begins to provide its benefits and NS shares under section 3.1, by accepting the transfer of these agreements by Canada. Canada and Nova Scotia agreed to enter into a surrender agreement under which Nova Scotia will assume all of Canada`s rights and obligations under these agreements.
15.1 Canada and Nova Scotia will draw up an inventory of assets that will be transferred to Nova Scotia without consideration. The assets to be transferred to Nova Scotia will focus on the extent of Nova Scotia`s responsibility for labour market development and the number of Canadian employees transferred to Nova Scotia. Nova Scotia will provide funding to help employers, employers` and workers` organizations, local communities and local communities develop and implement strategies to manage staff adjustment and meet staff needs. It is believed that labour market partnerships can be used to help workers at risk of losing their jobs. 3.2 Nova Scotia and Canada agree that service provision will be maintained in municipalities where Service Canada has an office that currently provides programs and services under this agreement until an audit of the provision of services is completed. These municipalities include: Amherst, Antigonish, Bridgewater, Cape Breton Regional Municipality, Digby, Halifax Regional Municipality, Inverness, Kentville, New Glasgow, Port Hawkesbury, Shelburne, Truro, Windsor and Yarmouth. 7.4 Canada and Nova Scotia are committed to maintaining continuity of service to individuals and organizations. In support of this commitment, both parties agree that from the date of the signing of this agreement until June 30, 2009 included, Canada may extend or extend no more than two (2) years of grant agreements for its employment benefits and support activities that terminate or enter into new contracts during that period.
