Quebec group calls for workforce diversity summit

The Quebec government should convene a mini-summit to consider setting up a permanent task force to examine workforce diversity in Quebec, says the Conseil des relations interculturelles.

Representatives of various levels of government, business groups, trade unions, women's groups and community organizations should be invited to take part, the council said in a study prepared for Quebec. It is to be presented tomorrow to the Bouchard-Taylor inquiry into accommodating minorities.

The goal is to establish a permanent task force to identify problems and consider solutions so an increasingly diverse population can participate fully in Quebec's economic development, the council said.
