QUÉBEC, Nov. 23, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - Today, Ms. Guylaine Leclerc makes public the Fall 2016 Volume of the Report of the Auditor General of Québec to the National Assembly for 2016-2017. In Chapter 2, she makes known the results of her audit carried out at the Commission des partenaires du marché du travail (CPMT).
The action priorities established by the CPMT are based on an incomplete picture of workforce development needs. This picture disregards the qualitative aspect of the skills sought by employers and does not include professions that require a university degree. In addition, consideration of the regional dimension needs improvement. A complete picture of these needs on a national scale is, however, essential in order for the CPMT to adequately play its strategic roles and have an optimal impact on the job market.
After 19 years of existence, the CPMT is not fully playing its expected role as the national organization responsible for defining workforce development needs. To date, the CPMT has not implemented an intervention strategy with regard to the priority needs that it identified for workforce development. Its interventions are insufficient to ensure that the measures put in place by the CPMT and its partners effectively meet those needs.
The CPMT's reporting with regard to the priority needs it identified for workforce development could be improved through the use of better indicators. The indicators used by the CPMT to report on its five orientations are limited to the number of actions carried out, which makes it impossible to assess the results in relation to the actions taken.
The Highlights are available at www.vgq.qc.ca. The full report is available only in French.
