The Quebec government argued that occupational training was a matter of exclusive provincial jurisdiction, because it was part of education, but placed the SQDM under the responsibility of the Ministry of Labour and Manpower (later to be reorganized and renamed the Ministry of Employment and Solidarity).
There was one difference in the end-result of these battles: in Quebec, the Ministry of Education had difficulty being considered a player and even had to fight for a place at the board of the SQDM. In Ontario, on the other hand, the Ministry of Education had swallowed occupational training, courtesy of Harris's downsizing efforts and the abolition of OTAB.
In Quebec, a civil servant with an economic background who had participated in the creation of the SQDM obviously favoured the economist's approach to training.
Where Ontarians saw nothing but a failed attempt with OTAB and were ready to try something else, Quebeckers cared a great deal about the potential for provincial autonomy in occupational training that the SQDM represented in their eyes.
They quoted the book written on that subject a decade earlier by Diane Bellemare and Lise Poulin-Simon, both of whom were involved at one point or another with the direction of the SQDM. (17) This enthusiasm for achieving full employment was present in Quebec regardless of which party, Liberal or Parti quebecois, was in power.
As the most powerful partners, the CSN and the CPQ were hot afraid to intervene in political, even constitutional, questions and had acted as arbiters of the federal-provincial conflict as much as they were partners in the SQDM board of directors.
Created respectively in 1992 and 1993, and abolished in 1996, the SQDM and OTAB were two provincial boards dealing with occupational training and attempting a partnership between the public and the private sector.
