Biography / Administrative history
The Pilot Projects Branch was created within the Department of Labour in 1965. In 1966, the Branch was transferred to the Department of Manpower and Immigration. Its major responsibility was to discover the economic, social and other obstacles to the training and retraining of adults and to develop effective means to surmount them. In co-operation with the provinces, the Pilot Projects Branch was to set up NewStart corporations (one per province) in areas where unemployment was high. Successful methods and techniques of training, retraining and job counseling worked out by these corporations were to be implemented as programs by other responsible agencies. The NewStart corporations were to be experimental in their approach. They were to be in effect "pilot projects".
