The paper stresses how no system of labour force development can hope to solve problems of employment and labour development in Canada. The paper contends, however, that a labour force development culture can make a vast difference. The paper explains the value of life long learning (LLL) and of employers seeing the merits in older workers. The paper emphasizes how the key is to get people seeing work, and looking for it, in a positive way.

From the Paper:"The concept of Life Long Learning (LLL) needs to be instilled in all Canadians. Morris is correct in stating the need for a new orientation. (2000) All workers need to approach working life in a spirit of learning. If laid off, this is a chance for new learning. If unemployed for a period of time, this too, is time for learning that may be of various kinds. Knowledge and skills are both important. For example, a person who cannot find a government training program can find low cost or free ways to improve his or her English. If knowing English, the person can perfect their French, and if needing to acquire various skills in supervised non-unionized environments will accept the worker who comes to learn, minus pay, for a set number of hours per week. It is just another way that constructive learning of skills and knowledge is found by volunteering. The individual needs to have an attitude towards working and employers that is 'win-win' and cooperative. Many industries still depend on the person who shows that he or she is willing to learn, that an effort will be made."
