A good practice, even if a contract is concluded and signed, is for the playwright to remind the other party, proactively and in a timely manner, of elements (such as billing agreements) that can be easily forgotten in the day-to-day business of theatre management without malice. Many theatres have contracts with other types of artists in much greater numbers than with playwrights and may not have as a standard method of organisation to follow aspects of dramaturgical work agreements, even if they have been agreed in good faith. The EBSMs were also established in 1996 and funded by the LMDAs. They offer various programs and services to the unemployed or those who have no connection to the labour market to help them follow education or job search. The Committee was informed that this programming has not changed much since 1996, despite significant changes in the labour market and in the Canadian economy. Mary-Lou Donnelly, Workers` Commissioner of the Canada Employment Commission, told the committee that the process of renewing the LMDAs should ensure that the new generation of agreements is relevant to the reality of current workers and employers. [4] Matthew Mendelsohn, Director of the Mowat Centre, also referred to labour market restructuring, citing the example of Ontario: Labour Market Agreements are funding agreements between Canada and Saskatchewan that support people who have difficulty entering or re-entering the labour market. The programs help the unemployed or workers who lack basic education and skills receive the training they need to find and keep good jobs. MAID funds MSM by transferring a portion of the EI account to the provinces and territories by the federal government. All provinces and territories have transfer agreements, although the design and delivery of services are not always identical. People who are not eligible for EI can benefit from skills development and training services under UNEM. People who lack essential skills and who have a low level of reading and reading level are also entitled to skills development and training funded by ILAs. Bilateral agreements have been signed with all 10 provinces and 3 territories.

MMAs make $500 million per year available to provincial and territorial governments to cover the costs of these services. The purpose of MMLs is similar to that of LMDAs; The objective of the funding is to increase the participation of under-represented groups in the labour market and to ensure that these groups have the right skills to compete in the labour market. [24] Proposals to further refine these treaties are welcome.

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 programs to unemployed clients to prepare them to return to work quickly. .
