  Introduction
Despite generally improved business conditions in British Columbia in 1972,
developments in the major sectors affecting labour were not nearly as satisfactory.
The over-all improvement in the Provincial economy was largely in response to more
buoyant levels of activity in the North American economy in general as well as
improvement in major foreign markets. Increases in the value of shipments of
manufactured products were paced by the wood products sector, which enjoyed very
favourable markets during 1972. Other major primary industries also contributed
to an improved economic picture as did high levels of consumer expenditure and
housing construction. Capital investment in the Province in 1972 did not meet the
record levels posted in 1971 but remained very high.
British Columbia's rate of population growth in 1972 was estimated at 2.9 per
cent over the preceding year, resulting in a June 1 population of 2,247,000. This
rate of growth was significantly higher than the 2.2-per-cent increase recorded in the
Province a year earlier and the 1.2-per-cent growth of the total Canadian population
in 1972. Net in-migration to the Province from other Provinces and abroad was up
substantially over 1971 and accounted for over 73 per cent of British Columbia's
population growth in 1972.
In 1972 the Provincial labour force reached an estimated 949,000 persons, an
increase of 4.2 per cent or 38,000 persons over 1971. Employment, however,
increased by only 3.7 per cent or 31,000 persons, with the result that unemployment
in the Province in 1972 increased markedly. Average annual unemployment in
1972 in British Columbia was estimated at 7.5 per cent of the labour force, or 71,000
persons. The problem of high youth unemployment was underlined in 1972 with the
knowledge that workers in the 14 to 24 age-groups suffered an unemployment rate
in the range of 15 per cent.
Total wages and salaries in the Province reached $5,980 million in 1972, an
increase of 10.6 per cent or $573 million dollars over 1971. Average weekly wages
and salaries again increased in 1972 with the industrial composite wage reaching an
estimated $161.69.
In the realm of labour organization, the total growth in union membership in
the Province from 1971 to 1972 was considerable. Union membership reached
332,091 persons, an increase of 4.9 per cent or 15,504 workers over 1971. Total
union membership in 1972 represented 41.8 per cent of the total number of wage-
earners in the Province—a slight decline from the 42.0 per cent represented in
1971. This decline, despite the solid growth in union membership, was due to the
near record increase in the number of paid workers in the Province. In recent years,
particularly throughout the 1960's, the greater rate of growth of paid workers as
compared to union members has resulted in a decline in the degree of organization
in the labour force.
The Consumer Price Index for 1972 was estimated at 139.24 (1961 = 100),
a distressing increase of 4.5 per cent over the preceding year and a reversal of the
reduced rate of inflation recorded since 1969. Renewed inflationary pressures in
Canada will pose considerable difficulties in the coming year.
Labour relations in the Province in 1972 produced another area of major difficulty. Breakdowns in collective bargaining in major industries resulted in the
highest number of man-days lost due to labour disputes in the history of the Province.
Disputes during the year involved over 106,000 workers and resulted in an estimated
2,120,848 man-days lost. Particularly damaging were disputes in the construction,
forestry, manufacturing, and public administration sectors of the economy.   The
ll
 R 12
BRITISH COLUMBIA
ratio of man-days idled per worker involved reached 19.1 to 1 in 1972, an alarming
increase over the ratio of 5.3 to 1 recorded a year earlier.
In summary, 1972 produced a legacy of high unemployment, renewed inflationary pressures, and severe breakdowns in labour-management relations. Despite
underlying strengths in the British Columbia economy, unless solutions are found
and applied to these major problem areas the Province will not achieve its potential
rate of economic and social growth.
The Department offers a wide variety of services to employees in many circumstances. For instance, an opportunity to learn and become qualified in a skilled
trade is provided under a supervised system of apprenticeship and industrial training.
The Labour Standards Branch administers laws relating to unpaid wages,
holiday pay, hours of work, child employment, minimum wages, and employment
agencies.
The Women's Bureau assists women with complaints relating to their employment. It is concerned with the well-being of women in all types of work, provides
guidance and consultation, and makes studies and recommendations to improve their
efficiency and economic position in the labour force.
Under the provisions of the Labour Relations Act, employees are assured of
the right to be represented by a trade union. Once certified, trade unions are given
the exclusive right to bargain on behalf of employees. In addition, the Labour
Relations Board deals with unfair labour practices and grievances arising out of
collective agreements.
During 1972 the Mediation Commission was terminated and its duties were
assumed by a newly created Mediation Services Branch of the Department. The
Branch is staffed by highly skilled mediators who assist labour and management in
the collective bargaining process and in helping to resolve labour disputes.
The Compensation Consultant, who is an employee of the Department of
Labour and is independent of the Workmen's Compensation Board, gives guidance
without charge to a workman with regard to the best method of proceeding with his
claim under the Workmen's Compensation Act.
The Human Rights Act prohibits discrimination between male and female employees with respect to remuneration, and discrimination with respect to employment
or membership in trade unions because of race, religion, sex, colour, nationality,
ancestry, or place of origin. The Act also contains prohibitions with respect to the
publication of advertisements or the making of inquiries expressing limitations,
specifications, or preferences as to race, religion, colour, nationality, ancestry, or
place of origin, or expressing any intention to discriminate with respect to employment because of the age of employees. There are also contained in the Act provisions prohibiting discrimination with respect to the occupancy and purchase of
commercial premises and self-contained dwelling-units because of race, religion,
colour, nationality, ancestry, or place of origin.
Inspection is made of factories, shops, and office buildings with respect to
proper sanitation, ventilation, heating, lighting, and all working conditions for the
safety and comfort of employees. Passenger and freight elevators, escalators, dumbwaiters, and man-lifts are inspected regularly to ensure that they are in safe operating condition.
The work of the Research Branch is intended to assist the Department in its
programme of labour legislation and administration through the provision of a wide
range of research activities. The Branch studies problems relating to labour standards, industrial relations, technological change, and economic growth. These studies
are widely used by the public, labour, and industry.

The Honourable the Minister of Labour,

Sir: I am pleased to submit this report of the Apprenticeship and Industrial
Training Branch for the year ended December 31, 1972.
Apprentices in Training
On December 31, 1972, there were 9,083 apprentices registered on the records
of the Apprenticeship and Industrial Training Branch. Considering the disruptions
to the work force due to labour disputes during the past year, the over-all increase
of apprentice registrations over 1971 is most encouraging. The greatest increase
in numbers occurred in the trades of automotive mechanical repair, carpentry,
electrical-construction, heavy-duty mechanic, hairdressing, millwright, plumbing,
machinist, electrical-industrial, ironwork, and sheet metal.
 R 14 BRITISH COLUMBIA
Apprenticeship Technical Training
The in-school or technical training portion of an apprentice's training has
gradually assumed a more important role; and there has been a gradual movement
toward day school training instead of evening school classes. This has created a
need for more classroom and shop space. Because of the geographical location of
our work force, especially in construction, the major need for classroom and shop
space is in the Lower Mainland area. In order to help alleviate this need, the Branch
has, as soon as the number of apprentices in a given trade in a geographical area of
the Province has grown sufficiently to economically warrant classes, established
classes in regional colleges or vocational schools in this area.
Daytime training was provided for 5,794 apprentices in classes located at the
B.C. Vocational School, Burnaby; Malaspina College, Nanaimo; Camosun College,
Victoria; Okanagan College, Kelowna; Cariboo College, Kamloops; and the Vancouver Vocational Institute, Division of Vancouver City College.
In addition to the daytime classes, 764 apprentices were assigned to evening
classes which were conducted in many schools throughout the Province. In order
to expand the educational horizons of our apprentices, they are also being counselled
to attend refresher and upgrading classes related to the speciality areas of their
trades. Most of this training takes place where there are sufficient apprentices to
justify special classes.
In the Yukon and Northwest Territories, where the number of apprentices is
small, it is not practical from an economic standpoint to conduct training classes for
apprentices. Because of this, arrangements were made between training officials in
the territories, Canada Manpower, and the Apprenticeship and Industrial Training
Branch to assign their apprentices to classes in British Columbia.
In technical training, as in many other things, efficiency of operation and the
need to try and meet the majority of training requirements mitigates against frac-
tionalizing training programmes for groups who want special consideration. The
Apprenticeship and Industrial Training Branch consistently endeavours to meet its
responsibilities and at the same time be fair to all, and this policy will continue in
the future.
Pre-apprenticeship Training
The need to provide post-secondary training for persons who had either graduated or otherwise left our secondary schools was recognized by officials of the
Apprenticeship and Industrial Training Branch in the early 1950's; as a result of
which, in co-operation with the Department of Education, pre-apprenticeship training programmes were established at the B.C. Vocational Schools in Burnaby and
Nanaimo. Since then this programme has been expanded to cover all major trades,
and the classes are held in regional vocational schools or community colleges in
British Columbia.
The pre-apprentice programme, which has the enthusiastic support of labour
and management, was established with a two-fold purpose in mind—
(1) To provide young people who had left the secondary schools with an
opportunity to acquire basic trade knowledge so that they would be
more acceptable to employers:
(2) To overcome the reluctance of the employer about hiring young
people who did not have some previous experience.
 INDUSTRIAL TRAINING BRANCH
R 15
Programmes of this kind provide the vehicle whereby our young people can
find jobs and assume their rightful place in our expanding economy. Training of a
technical or vocational nature almost always leads to meaningful, lucrative employment.
The present courses are from 20 to 24 weeks in duration and are offered to
persons who wish to prepare themselves for entry into apprenticeship training programmes. There are no fees charged for the courses and a subsistence and travel
allowance is paid to the trainee to enable him to live while attending school.
The programme has been successful and has done much to alleviate the shortage
of apprentices in various trade areas. During 1972, training was offered to 1,400
persons in 21 trades. Most of the 1,140 pre-apprentices who graduated found employment as apprentices, others found work related to their training.
The Federal Department of Manpower and Immigration purchases a percentage of all pre-apprentice training classes for their clients. The Apprenticeship
and Industrial Training Branch has the sole responsibility for scheduling the pre-
apprentice classes and for the selection of trainees; however, they do co-operate with
Canada Manpower, unions, and employers in the selection procedure.
Cariboo College, Kamloops, has been added to the list of vocational schools
and community colleges where training for apprentices and pre-apprentices is sponsored and paid for by the Apprenticeship and Industrial Training Branch. Training
is now being conducted in heavy duty, automotive mechanics, and carpentry.

Apprenticeship Advisory Committees
The Provincial Apprenticeship Committee met six times during the year to
consider and approve new contracts of apprenticeship, the cancellation of apprenticeship contracts, the transfer of apprentices between employers, the extension of apprenticeship contracts, and the issuing of apprenticeship certificates to apprentices
who satisfactorily completed training. Approval was also granted to enrol selected
students in the pre-apprenticeship programme.
During 1972 the Provincial Apprenticeship Committee held five public hearings
for the purpose of considering submissions made by interested parties regarding
the designation of apprenticeship and tradesmen's qualification for the trades of
ironwork; cook; industrial instrumentation; floorcovering; and roofing, damp and
waterproofing.
Regular meetings of Trade Advisory Committees were held during the year for
the purpose of receiving recommendations for new courses, revisions of existing
courses, and the examining of draft copies of trade analyses, courses, and examinations. The members of these committees are conscientious, and their services are of
inestimable value to the Apprenticeship and Industrial Training Branch. I would
like to thank all the members of our many committees for the time and advice that
was so freely given to the Branch.
Designation of Trades
Recommendations by the Provincial Apprenticeship Committee to the Honourable the Minister with respect to the designation of certain trades for apprenticeship
and the amendment of other trades for the purpose of voluntary or compulsory
tradesmen's qualification resulted in the following Orders in Council being passed:
The trade of ironwork was added to Schedule A of the Apprenticeship
and Tradesmen's Qualification Act for the purpose of apprenticeship
and voluntary tradesmen's qualification by Order in Council 602 on
February 15, 1972.
The trade of cook was amended for the purpose of voluntary tradesmen's
qualification by Order in Council 740 on February 29, 1972.
The trade of industrial instrumentation was amended for the purpose of
voluntary tradesmen's qualification by Order in Council 3519 on
September 28, 1972.
The trade of floorcovering was added to Schedule A of the Apprenticeship
and Tradesmen's Qualification Act for the purpose of apprenticeship
by Order in Council 3518 on September 28, 1972.
The trade of roofing, damp and waterproofing was amended for the purpose of voluntary tradesmen's qualification by Order in Council 4226
on December 8, 1972.
Supervision and Promotion
The counselling staff of the Apprenticeship and Industrial Training Branch
visited secondary schools to disseminate up-to-date information and literature relative to the apprenticeship and pre-apprenticeship programmes to students, school
counsellors, teaching staff, and principals.

 R 18
BRITISH COLUMBIA
Routine inspection and counselling of employers and apprentices is carried out
in all areas of the Province, and our staff devotes as much time as possible to maintaining close contact with employers, employer organizations, unions, and Joint
Training Committees for the purpose of promoting apprenticeship training. The
staff of the Apprenticeship and Industrial Training Branch is indebted to all those
persons who represent employers, unions, and Joint Training Committees for their
co-operation and help in promoting apprenticeship throughout the Province.
The establishment of full-time Counsellors in district offices in the areas where
vocational schools or community colleges are located has done much to stimulate
apprenticeship, and has provided more comprehensive coverage to employers.
The melding of some vocational schools with community colleges has created
new and interesting situations which, as yet, have not created any major problems;
however, we do foresee the possibility of changes within the community college
concept of training, the effect of which on our training programmes still has to be
assessed. Extensive apprenticeship and pre-apprenticeship training is carried out in
almost all of the community colleges, all of which is scheduled and supervised by
Counsellors of the Apprenticeship and Industrial Training Branch.
Federal-Provincial Co-operation
Relations and co-operation between Canada Manpower and the Apprenticeship
and Industrial Training Branch have been good, the most significant development
being the elimination of the three-year rule. Effective July 1, 1972, the previous
regulation whereby a trainee was only eligible for a training allowance if the trainee
had a three-year attachment with the labour force was rescinded. The new regulation grants a basic allowance to trainees who have been one year out of school. This
provides an allowance for all apprentices.
The Department of Manpower and Immigration, which administers the Adult
Occupational Training Act through their training division in Ottawa, convenes several meetings each year, both in Ottawa and other locations. These meetings, which
are attended by Directors of Apprenticeship and Examination Co-ordinators, are
held to discuss inter-provincial examinations, trade analyses, course outlines, training
methods, and many other matters related to apprenticeship and industrial training.
These meetings provide a forum whereby the Directors of Apprenticeship and
officials from Canada Manpower can discuss many items of mutual concern and
formulate policy with regard to training.
Tradesmen's Qualification
The number of trades which have been designated for either voluntary or compulsory tradesmen's qualification continues to grow at an astonishing rate; however,
it would appear as though all the major trades are now covered and that in the future
the addition of new trades will be much slower.
Employers in British Columbia recognize that the holder of a tradesmen's qualification certificate does have the skills and knowledge to properly perform his job;
as a result, the tradesman who does have a tradesmen's qualification generally gets
the first choice of available jobs.
During 1972, many of the examinations were revised and new examinations
were developed for saw-fitting, circular-saw filing, benchman, and cooking. Development work is proceeding for examinations in the trade of industrial instrumentation.

Report of the Factory and Elevator
Inspection Branch
Head office - - - - -411 Dunsmuir Street, Vancouver 3.
James D. Forrest - - Chief Inspector of Factories and Elevators.
Branch office   ------    Parliament Buildings, Victoria.
The Honourable the Minister of Labour,
Parliament Buildings, Victoria, B.C.
Sir: I have the honour to submit the annual report of the Factory and Elevator
Inspection Branch for the year ended December 31, 1972.
Factory Division
In course of the year under review, Factory Inspectors conducted inspections
in thousands of factories, stores, and offices to determine conformity with the legislation pertinent to temperature control, ventilation, exhaust systems, air contamination, illumination, sanitary facilities, lunchrooms, female restrooms, housekeeping
conditions, and clothing storage. As a result of this inspectional activity, several
thousand directives were issued to employers outlining the necessary improvements
required to meet our standards of acceptability.
The second major role of the inspectional staff was to assure through the
examination of plans and specifications that any proposed new factory or an addition
to an existing one would also conform with our requirements relating to acceptable
environmental conditions for existing factories. Where necessary, we have also been
approving plans for office building and major stores to ascertain conformity with our
requirements for such premises, in order to assure that employees in such place of
employment would benefit from our services. During the current year over 800
engineering drawings and specifications were approved for new factories, stores,
and office buildings, as well as additions to such existing buildings.
Considering the inspectional volume achieved, thousands of workers who spend
their daily lives in factories, stores, and offices of all description have had their
working environment improved. Likewise, those who will be occupying the new
factories, stores, and offices will find that their safety, health, and comfort have been
engineered into their working environment.
November of this year marked the completion of a three-year agreement between our Department of Labour and the Canada Department of Labour. This
agreement authorized both inspectorates of the Branch to conduct inspections in
their respective fields of factories and offices by the Factory Inspectors and elevating
devices by the Elevator Inspectors. These inspections were conducted in buildings
and operations directly connected with the Federal Government, as well as businesses coming under the jurisdiction of the Government of Canada.
Since the Federal Government wished to continue the use of our services, a
new agreement was negotiated at this time which again fully recompenses our
Government for the equivalent service of three Factory Inspectors and one Elevator
Inspector.
This year the Factory Division, comprised of eight Inspectors, conducted over
5,000 inspections and issued over 2,000 directives to bring the environmental
conditions into conformity with the legislation.
 FACTORY AND ELEVATOR INSPECTION BRANCH
R 25
During the year there were 44 employers and 65 homeworkers authorized by
permit to conduct homework in accordance with the provisions contained in the
Factories Act. The employers and homeworkers were duly informed of the new
minimum wage of $2 per hour which became effective December 4, 1972.
Elevator Division
The most dominant factor affecting this Division during the year was the
construction trades' strike which occurred in early summer, followed by the strike
of the elevator constructors in September, which continued to year's end. As a
consequence, new construction was curtailed, resulting in a 50-per-cent drop in new
elevator construction.
Throughout the elevator constructors' strike the Elevator Inspectors maintained
the inspection of elevating devices on a normal basis, and directives to owners
followed inspection when necessary repairs were required to maintain equipment in
conformity with regulatory requirements. In spite of the fact that regular maintenance programmes supplied by elevator firms could not be maintained on a normal
basis, every effort was made by them to co-operate with this Branch to make sure
that elevating devices were operating safely for institutional and public use. The
Inspectors performed commendably during this very difficult period.
To achieve greater safety for the occupants of buildings, when elevators become
stalled in hoistways, and when fire and smoke create emergency conditions for both
passengers and firemen, all owners of existing passenger elevators where officially
notified that approved "emergency lighting" would have to be installed in such
elevators by the end of 1973, to conform with our regulations.
The Canadian Standards Association, Standard B44-1971, Safety Code for
Elevators, Dumbwaiters, Escalators, and Moving Walks, was published for distribution this year, and, of course, is being applied under the authority of the Factories
Act. The amendments and additions to the Code were very extensive and obviously
of great import to the elevator industry, architects, professional engineers, contractors, and owners.
The Canadian Standards Association also published an entirely new code this
year, known as the CSA Standard Z 185-1972, Safety Code for Workmen's Hoists
Tower and Cantilever Types, which will also be enforced by the elevator inspectorate
of the Branch. This code applies to the design, construction, installation, operation,
inspection, testing, maintenance, alterations, and repairs of the tower structures and
hoists. This type of hoist is designed to carry both workmen and material connected
with a building project.
Since both these codes have been adopted throughout Canada by provincial
Governments, it permits hoist manufacturers anywhere in Canada or elsewhere to
design and manufacture to meet the specifications of one code, rather than varying
regulations of different enforcing authorities.
Since all provinces are represented on the Code Committee, as well as manufacturers and other interested bodies, it also fosters a better technical consensus
than could be otherwise achieved.
Technical Services Division
Throughout the year under review, technical consultations have been on a continuing basis with other departments of the Government, the Canadian Standards
Association, Associate Committee of the National Building Code, and various manufacturers' groups. We are particularly pleased this year to have met with the execu-
 R 26
BRITISH COLUMBIA
tives of the Sheet Metal and Air Conditioning Contractors' National Association,
B.C. Chapter, to discuss our mutual responsibilities relating to the expanding technology of heating, exhaust systems, and air-conditioning. It appears that we can
continue an effective relationship in this area through seminars and periodic meetings.
Also, we have continued our seminars on protective maintenance of elevating
devices for operating staff members of hospitals, and those in Provincial Government
buildings.

The following itemization lists the number of inspections conducted, during the
year 1972, relating to factories, stores, and offices, elevating devices, and the number

The Honourable the Minister of Labour,
Parliament Buildings, Victoria, B.C.
Sir: I have the honour to present the annual report of the Human Rights
Branch for the year ended December 31, 1972.
The Human Rights Branch received 275 complaints during the year 1972 by
letter, telephone, and by personal visits to the Branch office. The majority of these
complaints were beyond the scope of the legislation. However, disregarding legal
authority, an endeavour was made in most cases to assist the complainants. For
example, 63 complaints of discrimination received from female dietary aides at
Riverview Hospital were investigated, despite the Branch's lack of jurisdiction.
Government agencies such as the Riverview Hospital are not bound by the statute.
These 63 complaints have not been added to the sum total of complaints received
by the Branch during 1972. Because Branch-initiated complaints directed against
discriminatory advertising require brief involvement, these complaints also are not
now added to the sum total of complaints as heretofore. The number of complaints
received and noted above as opposed to the number of complaints noted in the 1971
Annual Report is a reflection of this policy change.
In 47 instances the complaints were required to be formally processed and
officers were appointed. Officers were successful in settling 24 of these complaints,
eight were judged to be without merit, five cases were heard by the Human Rights
Commission, and 10 are currently being investigated. Noteworthy among these
formal complaints is the fact that a large number centre around the equal pay pro-
 R 28
BRITISH COLUMBIA
visions of the Human Rights Act, section 4. Some of these complaints concerning
equal pay were initiated by the complainants with the help of the Status of Women
Council of British Columbia.
Two of these complaints received a great deal of publicity, both on television
and in the newspapers, concerning a firm in Vancouver which performed the service
of supplying office help to various employers. Two women employed by them as
sales representatives lodged complaints that they were being paid less than their male
counterpart, a salesman employed there at the same time. There was an effort made
to reconcile this dispute in its initial stages, both by the appointed officer and by the
Director; however, it finally was required to be placed before the Human Rights
Commission. Both parties were represented by counsel and the Commission found
against the employer and issued an order that the women be paid at the same rate
of pay as their male counterpart. Prior to receiving the order the employer discharged the young women for an alleged misdemeanor and the complainants lodged
a further complaint with the Commission that they felt they had been discharged
because they had made the complaint. This was retaliation, they alleged, and a
violation of section 5 (c) of the Human Rights Act. The Commission heard both
parties, both represented again by counsel, and the Commission found against the
employer and ordered the two women to be reinstated and paid the money lost as a
result of their discharge.
Another complaint under the equal pay provisions of the Act was made by a
woman employee who was leaving the Province. Prior to her leaving she was required to train her male replacement, who was hired at a higher rate of pay. The
delegated officer was successful in settling this woman's complaint of discrimination
and she was paid $239.25 lost by reason of the contravention.
Complaints were lodged by women employed by the three major departmental
stores in the Lower Mainland and Victoria. These complaints were all resolved at
the officers' stage when the employers made the necessary adjustments. In one particular instance, at the department store in Victoria, the dispute was reconciled when
the employer agreed to post in a suitable place in his establishment a scroll which
has been designed by the Branch and which states the principles embodied in the
Human Rights Act. The employer signed this scroll, which advises its readers of his
support of these principles.
Several complaints under the provisions of section 5 were received and processed. This is the particular section which prohibits, among other restrictions,
discrimination in employment on the basis of sex. Noteworthy among these was a
complaint from a woman employed as a waitress in a cocktail lounge in the Vancouver area. The new owner had refused to continue to employ her because he
thought the patrons were too rowdy for a woman to be involved, and as a consequence a complaint was lodged with the Branch. After a meeting with the complainant, her union representative, and the respondent employer, the woman was
rehired and paid the money lost by reason of the job refusal and the matter was
reconciled at that level. However, it came to the attention of the Branch that after
one shift the complainant had quit.
Another complaint of interest was lodged by a young married woman, a reporter for one of the newspapers in Victoria, who charged she was being discriminated against on the basis of sex because she was refused medical coverage for her
husband who was unemployed. She pointed out that males employed by the newspaper were granted full medical coverage for their wives and families on a contributory basis and she felt that denying her the right to cover her husband was discrimination on the basis of sex.   This matter was brought to the attention of the manager
 HUMAN RIGHTS BRANCH
R 29
of the newspaper by the Director and after some consultation it was agreed by the
manager to extend the same coverage to the females employed by the newspaper
as the coverage extended to the male employees.
Another complaint on the basis of sex discrimination was lodged by a young
man who had applied for entry as a student nurse at one of the Victoria hospitals
and was refused. He laid a complaint under section 5, charging discrimination on
the basis of sex. While section 11 (2) of the Human Rights Act exempts hospitals,
as nonprofit organizations, from the provisions of section 5 of the Act, it was felt
that the matter was worthy of investigation. As a result of the investigation it was
found that the hospital did not have the facilities to accommodate male student
nurses. It was pointed out, and the young man was made aware, that another hospital in the Victoria area did, in fact, have these facilities and could accept male
student nurses. As a result of these disclosures to the young man, his complaint was
withdrawn.
A complaint was received from a white male person who had applied for a
job as a busboy in one of the large hotels in Vancouver and who was allegedly told
that they only hired Chinese for this particular function. He made a formal complaint, which was subsequently investigated by the appointed officer. It was discovered he had misinterpreted what was alleged to have been said to him when he
applied for the job and he was shown that, in fact, there were also whites employed
as busboys in this hotel. The complainant then asked that his complaint be withdrawn.
Pursuant to the provisions of section 7 of the Act, a number of application for
employment forms were examined and found to contain questions which were discriminatory.    These forms were subsequently corrected.
Discriminatory advertising in the help-wanted sections of the daily newspapers
with respect to age continue to appear despite the fact that most newspapers head
their classified columns with a notice advising the public of the requirements of the
Human Rights Act. The offending advertiser is advised by the Branch of his responsibility under the law and supplied with a summary of the Act and a list of
guidelines for use in this type of advertising. Noteworthy is the fact that only in
the area of age discrimination can criticism be directed against the news media,
and even in this area there has been a considerable diminution of discriminatory
advertising.
Two complaints concerning discrimination in accommodation prohibited by
section 9 of the Act were investigated. One complaint on the basis of the colour
of the tenancy-seeker was felt to be without merit when it was discovered the landlord had coloured tenants in other houses he owned. One complaint was made
on the basis of the religion of the tenant who had received a notice to vacate when
the landlord discovered he had erected a shrine in the house and was burning incense.    Subsequent to the investigation, the complainant withdrew his complaint.
An aldermanic candidate charged the City of Victoria with a violation of the
provisions of section 10 of the Act, which among other restrictions prohibits the
publication of any notice, sign, symbol, emblem, or other representation indicating
discrimination, or an intention to discriminate, against any person or any class of
persons for any purpose because of the race, religion, colour, nationality, ancestry, or
place of origin of that person or class of persons. Approximately 1,000 letters had
been mailed by the City of Victoria to ratepayers with surnames that sounded East
Indian or Chinese, informing them that they must declare their Canadian citizenship
before they would be allowed to vote. Many of these ratepayers were Canadian
born.   The matter was satisfactorily settled by the investigating officer upon the
 R 30
BRITISH COLUMBIA
written assurance from the City Clerk that the practice would be discontinued and
that in future there will be one list of voters only, and the onus will be on all individuals to ensure they are Canadian citizens or British subjects.
The Director has been a member of television panel shows on the subject of
human rights and has been a guest speaker before law classes at high schools and
at the University of British Columbia. Administrative groups, service clubs, and
human rights groups have also been addressed by the Director. Complimentary
copies of the Human Rights Act have been distributed at these gatherings and by
mail to persons requiring such information. Approximately 500 copies of the
statute have been distributed in this manner.
The Human Rights Branch wishes to gratefully acknowledge the co-operation
of the B.C. Human Rights Council, the B.C. Civil Liberties Association, the Status
of Women Council of British Columbia, the Victoria Status of Women Action Group,
the Vancouver Labour Committee for Human Rights, the United Nations Association—Victoria Branch, the Canadian Jewish Congress, the B.C. Non-Status Indians' Association, the Union of B.C. Indian Chiefs, and all those persons who have
contributed so much to the furtherance of the principle that every person is free and
equal in dignity and rights without regard to race, religion, sex, colour, nationality,
ancestry, or place of origin.

The Honourable the Minister of Labour,
Parliament Buildings, Victoria, B.C.
Sir: I have the honour to present the annual report of the Labour Relations
Branch for the year ended December 31, 1972.
Applications for Certification
In 1972 there were 1,131 applications for certification. This represents an
increase of 127 over the number which was received in 1971. There were 811
certifications ordered, compared with 667 in 1971, and 212 were rejected, while 237
were in this category in 1971.
There were 88 complaints filed with the Labour Relations Board under section
7 of the Act. This is an increase of nine over the number which was filed in the
previous year. Forty-two orders were issued by the Labour Relations Board pursuant to this section of the Act. In 10 instances, settlements were effected by an
Officer of the Department.
The Labour Relations Board met on 116 occasions and held 42 hearings, compared with 113 meetings and 34 hearings in 1971.
Settlement of Grievances
Provisions of section 22 (4) of the Labour Relations Act continued to be
widely used. The section provides that, at any time prior to the appointment of a
Board of Arbitration or other body, either party to the collective agreement may
 R 32
BRITISH COLUMBIA
request the Registrar in writing to appoint an Officer of the Department of Labour
to confer with the parties to assist them to settle the difference. The Officer, after
conferring with the parties, may make a report to the Registrar, and the report may
be referred to the Labour Relations Board. The Board may, if in its opinion the
difference is arbitrable, refer the matter back to the parties or inquire into it and,
following such inquiry, make an order for final and conclusive settlement of the
difference.
Under this section, out of 272 referrals, there were 152 settlements effected by
Officers of the Department, compared with 133 in 1971. Ninety-five orders were
issued by the Board; in 21 instances the differences were referred back to the parties
and in four cases it was found that the differences were not arbitrable.
Grievance Procedure Provided
Seven grievance procedures were provided by the Minister, pursuant to the
provisions of section 22 (2) of the Labour Relations Act.
Arbitration Boards
Where grievance procedures under collective agreements had been invoked and
the requisite applications made, chairmen were named to eight Arbitration Boards
by the Minister of Labour, and four appointments were made to one-man Boards.
The Labour Relations Board appointed chairmen to three Arbitration Boards during
the year.
Accreditations of Employers' Organizations
During the year under review, accreditations of employers' organizations were
ordered in two instances. One accreditation was cancelled by the Labour Relations
Board. One application for accreditation was rejected, no applications were withdrawn. Three applications to vary accreditations were rejected and two applications
to vary were withdrawn. Twenty-four applications to vary were granted by the
Board.

The Honourable the Minister of Labour,
Parliament Buildings, Victoria, B.C.
Sir: I have the honour to present the annual report of the Labour Standards
Branch for the year ended December 31, 1972.
Industrial Relations Officers made a total of 48,611 calls to administer statutes
that the Labour Standards Branch is responsible for, including those calls necessary
with regard to the Labour Relations Act and the Human Rights Act. Departmental
cars used by officers travelled 372,991 miles in this connection.
Routine inspections were completed throughout the year in order to acquaint
both employers and employees with the legislation administered by the Branch and
to ensure employees were receiving their rights under the legislation. Adjustments
were effected both to employees' wages and with regard to their conditions of
employment.
Eleven Branch offices located throughout the Province are available to employers, employees, and other interested parties who required information regarding
legislation.
Complaints received by the Branch required investigation by officers. Where
the legislation was not being complied with, adjustments to employees' working
conditions and (or) to the wages due to employees were required. The major portion
of complaints were concerning the nonpayment of wages. Routine inspections and
complaint investigations resulted in wage, annual holiday pay, general holiday pay,
and minimum wage adjustments being made to 8,849 employees from 4,450 employers, and amounted to $961,899.14.
Four hundred and thirty-three certificates were issued by the Board of Industrial Relations under the provisions of the Payment of Wages Act; they were on
behalf of 2,251 employees. One hundred and fifty-six demand notices were issued.
Increasing difficulties have been encountered in enforcing payment to an employee
of his wages, this is evident from the increased assistance required from legal sources
and from the number of bankruptcy and Court proceedings being taken.
Employment agencies were inspected to ensure the proprietors were complying
with the Employment Agencies Act and in addition were complying with the
Human Rights Act; 76 registrations were issued following these inspections.
 R 38

Under the terms of the Control of Employment of Children Act, 300 permits
were issued to employers aUowing them to employ a child. In each case, investigation was made to ensure that the work was not dangerous or that it would not
adversely affect the health or schooling of the child.
Legislation administered by the Labour Standards Branch was effective in
securing adjustments for employees, which are recorded in the following table:

Control of Employment of Children Act
Unless a permit has been granted to the employer by the Minister of Labour
or a person duly authorized by him to issue such permits, the employment of children under 15 years of age in certain designated occupations or industries is prohibited by the Control of Employment of Children Act.
In order that the health and scholastic standing of the children will not be adversely affected by their work in industry or business, the Department works in
close co-operation with the school authorities and the parents or guardians of the
children. Permits are issued only when it has been established that the child's
health will not suffer, and that the work will not expose the boy or girl to unsafe
conditions or interfere with their standing in school.
The Schedule to the Act specifies and defines the occupations or industries for
which permits are required; these include
(1) manufacturing industry;
(2) ship-building industry;
(3) generation of electricity or motive power of any kind;
(4) Logging industry;
(5) construction industry;

The Honourable the Minister of Labour,

Sir: I have the honour to present the annual report of the Mediation Services
Branch for the year ended December 31, 1972.
The provisions of the Mediation Commission Act dealing with mediation procedures of the Mediation Commission ceased to be effective from the coming into
effect of the Mediation Services Act on November 20, 1972.
This report reflects the activities of the Mediation Officers during 1972, pursuant to procedures under both Acts.
During the period to November 20, 1972, under procedures of the Mediation
Commission Act, Mediation Officers were appointed in 224 disputes involving 1,495
employers and 89,363 employees. On November 20, 1972, under procedures of
the Mediation Services Act, Mediation Officers were reappointed in the 13 continuing disputes, thus providing an uninterrupted service of mediation. In addition
to the 13 reappointments, Mediation Officers were appointed in 29 disputes under
procedures of the Mediation Services Act during the period from November 20 to
the end of the year, bringing the total appointments to 253 for 1972, involving
1,525 employers, 1,602 bargaining units, and 92,944 employees.
Settlements by Mediation Officers
Of the 243 appointments of Mediation Officers completed during the year,
settlements were reached by the parties in 173 disputes with the assistance of a
Mediation Officer.

Under procedures of the Mediation Commission Act, the Mediation Commission held hearings and made decisions in five disputes. Three of these hearings
were as a result of Orders in Council, decisions thereof binding the parties. Of the
remaining two hearings, the parties reached agreement by further negotiations in
one instance and the parties accepted the decision in the other instance.

Report of the Research Branch
Head office
G. D. Bishop
Parliament Buildings, Victoria.
Director
The Honourable the Minister of Labour,
Parliament Buildings, Victoria, B.C.
Sir: The following presents the report of the Research Branch for 1972:
During the year, considerable effort was again given to analysing information
for the various Boards and Branches of the Department. This internal function
consisted of preparing material dealing in particular with labour statistics, research
on labour standards, and industrial relations research.
The Research Branch also provided a growing service to trade unions, employers, and the public with information largely related to the contents of collective
agreements. Our files of wage-rate data contained in collective agreements provided an invaluable source of information to personnel officers, labour and management negotiators. During the year the branch published a study entitled Wage
and Work Guarantees in British Columbia Collective Agreements, which received
a very favourable response.
Work was also completed on a further study on the analysis of major collective
agreements in the Province. The latest detailed study entitled Analysis of Collective Agreements in British Columbia will be distributed in early 1973. This report
analyses 255 major agreements covering an estimated 181,260 employees. The
study is divided into seven industrial divisions, including an industrial composite,
and provides a comprehensive view of conditions of work within the unionized sector of each major industrial group.
Work was also completed on a study of dental plans as these operate within
the collective agreement. This report, which will be released early in 1973, should
be of considerable interest to trade unions and management interested in this type
of provision within their agreement.
Late in 1972 the Research Branch took over the research function carried out
within the former Mediation Commission. In this regard a monthly publication is
now being developed which will provide a vehicle for showing details of newly negotiated wage settlements and average wage settlements. This publication will
also provide a means of publishing current labour statistics as well as articles on
labour topics of general interest.
The Research Branch continued its co-operative programmes of labour research with other labour jurisdictions in Canada. This was accomplished through
the medium of the Research and Statistics Committee of the Canadian Association
of Administrators of Labour Legislation. The undersigned attended the annual
meeting of the Canadian Association of Administrators of Labour Legislation in
Halifax and was elected to the executive of the Research and Statistics Committee
for 1973. The Branch also continued its participation in the Federal-Provincial
Manpower Needs Committee. Also, in the area of manpower research, the branch
is participating with industry and labour and the Federal Department of Manpower
in a study of labour-force requirements and socio-economic problems in the British
Columbia forestry industry.    Limitations of staff have curtailed further work in
 R 46
BRITISH COLUMBIA
the area of manpower adjustment programmes, but it is intended to pursue new
areas of work as our staff is augmented.
An analytical and statistical supplement prepared by the Research Branch
is found at the end of the Report. This section contains a comprehensive review
of the labour sector of the British Columbia economy in 1972. A review of labour
disputes in the year is included, as is a review of developments within the Province's
labour movement. Directories of union and employers' organization officials round
out the Report.
Respectfully submitted.

Report of the Trade-schools Regulation
Administrative Office

Administrative Officers:
Mrs. C. K. Waddell
Col. J. W. Inglis
John Melville
The Honourable the Minister of Labour,
Parliament Buildings, Victoria, B.C.
Sir: I have the honour to present the annual report of the administration of
the Trade-schools Regulation Act /or the year ended December 31, 1972.
The Trade-schools Administrative Officers met 11 times during the year for
consideration of all matters requiring their attention. Recommendations were
made to the Honourable the Minister in regard to registration, reregistration, requests for changes in tuition fees, requests for approval of new courses, and the
general conduct of private trade-schools, together with other matters regarding the
administration of the Act.
As of December 31, 1972, 107 schools were registered in accordance with
the Trade-schools Regulation Act in British Columbia to offer correspondence
courses, practical courses, or combined correspondence and practical training.
Ninety-four schools were reregistrations from the year 1971 and 13 new schools
were considered and recommended to the Honourable the Minister and approved
for certificate of registration during the year. Twenty-three schools discontinued
operation in British Columbia in 1972.
I am pleased to report that all schools registered under the Act have complied
with the revised General Regulations Governing Trade-schools and the Special
Regulations Governing Correspondence and Home Study Schools in respect to the
posting of the required performance bond under Order in Council approved November 25, 1971.
All schools offering practical training in British Columbia were visited and
inspected at least twice during the year. Visits were also made to new schools
applying for certificate of registration to operate in the Province in regard to the
facilities for training and the suitability of premises.
Special visits were made to schools to attend to specific problems and complaints. In instances where complaints were received from students wishing to
discontinue training and who had moneys owing to them by way of prepaid tuition
fees, refunds were effected in accordance with the regulations.
The following is a list of schools reregistered for 1972, and the new schools
registered during the year, indicating the courses each school offers. The schools

Report of the Women's Bureau
Head office      -      -      -      -      -    411 Dunsmuir Street, Vancouver 3.
Mrs. C. K. Waddell   ---------    Director.
Mrs. Y. M. McCully        ------    Assistant Director.
The Honourable the Minister of Labour,
Parliament Buildings, Victoria, B.C.
Sir: It is my honour to present to you the annual report of the Women's Bureau
for the year ended December 31, 1972.
Women continued to enter the labour force in ever-increasing numbers, there
were 19,000 entrants during the year, more than twice the 1971 figure of 9,000.
British Columbia's labour force was estimated at 949,000,* and the female sector
at 314,000. The participation rate of women (aged 14 and over of the female
population) was estimated at 38.0 per cent; 1.2 percentage points up from 1971.
"Women in Industry" forms, completed by branch officers of the Department
throughout the Province, recorded over 25,500 inquiries concerning women. Analysis of the statistics showed the question most frequently asked related to minimum
wages. It was encouraging to see a sizeable increase in the number of women
requesting information concerning apprenticeship training.
During the year, 2,325 women came to the office for personal interviews.
The amount of time spent in each personal interview has increased as women's
problems have become more complex, requiring a more indepth analysis. Women
planning upgrading, or those who are considering re-entering the labour market,
seek information on educational opportunities, changes in Government-sponsored
training and retraining programmes, and (or) the availability of day care.
The Bureau's reference library has copies of current calendars and brochures
outlining technical and vocational programmes offered by the Apprenticeship and
Industrial Training Branch, technical institutes, and trade and vocational schools,
and career monographs describing related occupations. Persons, including prospective day-care supervisors, in the course of their studies, have made use of the
Bureau's extensive material and newspaper clippings dealing with all aspects on day
care, philosophy, availability, licensing authority, setting-up costs, employer and
employee relations, and training.
A syllabus for Branch and inter-Branch training was prepared by the Bureau,
and officers, inspectors, and counsellors employed within the Department of Labour
throughout the Province were instructed in the problems that women encounter
relating to their training and employment, with specific emphasis on the difficulties
that still exist, despite legislation that prohibits discrimination in hiring, promoting,
and training of women, or paying a woman less because she is a woman. Staff
members of the Department, in turn, share with us their observations, and a closer
liaison between all branches of the Department has developed.
Counsellors in the schools recognizing the necessity of informing young women
of the broad spectrum of employment that is evolving, continued to call on the
Bureau to encourage girls to think in terms of long-term planning and preparation
for careers, to consider the full gamut of career possibilities, and to seek as much
education and training as possible, consistent with their talents.

Students in secondary schools were instructed in labour legislation and made
aware of their rights and responsibilities. This included speaking to the Employment
Orientation for Women classes held by the Vancouver City College Special Programmes Division and the King George Continuing Education Centre, Surrey.
Many universities and colleges instituted special courses of study, and often in
concert with women's organizations, conducted special seminars and conferences.
These activities have stimulated an ongoing positive action such as the formation of
many Information Centres for women. Others were programmes planned during
lunch hour so that working women could also attend. In many instances, the staff
of the Bureau were involved in the preplanning, or as resource people or speakers.
The Director served on the planning committee for the first of two conferences
for Western Canadian women. The conference was proposed and sponsored by the
Status of Women Council of Vancouver and the University of British Columbia
Centre for Continuing Education and funded by the Department of Manpower and
Tmmigration.
The western conference, Opportunities for Women in Employment, Training
and Counselling, was held in the City of Vancouver on October 28 and 29, 1972.
Invited participants were 65 women from the four western provinces and two northern territories, including Directors of Women's Bureaux, Departments of Labour, of
Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and British Columbia, and a representative of the Alberta
Women's Bureau, plus Senior Manpower representatives from Ottawa, Manitoba,
and British Columbia. Planning is now proceeding for the major conference in
May 1973.
Various delegations visited the Bureau for assistance in setting up specific
studies they had undertaken on such diverse subjects as part-time employment, day
care, human rights, equal pay, and job opportunities.
In British Columbia, for many years, women's organizations have been striving
for one minimum wage Act applying to both males and females. In October 1972
this goal was achieved.
In concluding this report, the Bureau wishes to express its sincere appreciation
for the assistance provided by all the branches within the Department of Labour
and the co-operation of both Federal and Provincial Government departments and
women's organizations throughout the Province.
Respectfully submitted.

Population
On June 1, 1972, British Columbia's population was estimated at 2,247,000
persons. This represents an increase of 62,379 or 2.9 per cent in 1972, as compared
to 2.2 per cent in 1971. The Province's 1971/72 population growth rate was more
than twice that of Canada, estimated at 1.2 per cent over the same period.

Comparing the 1971/72 growth rate to those of the last decade, the 2.9-percent rate can be considered average. In the 10-year period, British Columbia's
population was growing 3.0 per cent annually, with the lowest rate (1.9 per cent)
registered in the 1961/62 period and the highest (4.3 per cent) recorded in the
1965/66 period.
As previously noted, the Provincial population growth rates have fluctuated
since 1962. A primary reason for this occurrence is that population changes in
British Columbia have been directly related to the level of economic activity in
the Province, as population growth varies inversely with the unemployment circumstances.

It can be seen from Table 2 and Figure 3 that the population growth path was
running in the opposite direction to the Provincial unemployment rate over the
decade 1962 to 1972. In 1961, for example, 8.3 per cent of the Provincial labour
force was in the ranks of the unemployed. Consequently, population grew only
moderately (1.9 per cent) in the 1961/62 period. Conversely, unemployment was
reduced to 4.2 per cent in 1965, resulting in an accelerated visible population growth
rate of 4.3 per cent in 1965/66.
Components of Population Growth
Net in-migration is the principal source of population growth in British Columbia, as indicated in Table 3 and Figure 4. Over the 10-year period 1962/72, net
in-migration accounted for over 68 per cent of total population growth. The decline
in population growth during the 1961/62 period was primarily caused by a reduction
in net in-migration, which only made up 23.1 per cent of total increase. In the
1965/66 period, when the Province registered its highest population growth rate in
the decade, net in-migration as a percentage of the total increase was also the largest,
at 77.9 per cent. The population growth rate again declined in 1970/71 when net
in-migrants made up 58.9 per cent of total population increases. The percentage,
however, climbed in 1971/72, in which period net in-migrants constituted 73.2 per
cent of population growth.

The majority of migrants who settled in British Columbia in 1972 were from
other parts of Canada. Of the total 45,653 persons who came into the Province,
27,251 or 60 per cent were from the other provinces. Approximately 40 per cent or
18,402 persons of total migrants who came into British Columbia in 1972 were from
other parts of the world. While most of these non-Canadian immigrants were dependents (mainly children and wives), 8,318 were intended for the Provincial labour
market. It should be noted, however, that a vast majority of these foreign immigrants who preferred British Columbia as their destination are highly trained people
in various professional fields. Surprisingly, only 202 persons or 2.4 per cent of total
immigrants who came to this Province in 1971/72 were nonskilled labourers. In
summary, while foreign immigrants represented approximately 22 per cent of total
labour force growth in 1972, the addition was to the benefit of the Province.

Manpower Supply and Demand
With regard to manpower supply in British Columbia, an understanding of
our population of working age is significant. It is from this segment of the Provincial
population that the labour force (labour supply) is drawn.
In 1972, it was estimated that persons 14 years of age and over had reached
1,648,000, an increase of 54,000 or 3.4 per cent over the previous year's figure of
1,594,000. The 1972 rate of growth can be regarded as moderate in view of the
average annual growth rate of 3.8 per cent recorded in the last decade.
During the last five years the number of females of working age exceeded the
number of males, as clearly depicted in Table 4 and Figure 5. In 1972, the number
of working-age females totalled 827,000, slightly more than half of the persons 14
years of age and over. This represented an increase of 26,000 or 3.3 per cent over
the 1971 figure. However, the male increase for the same period was slightly higher
than that of females in that the former grew by 28,000 to 821,000, a 3.4-per-cent
climb from the previous year's figure of 793,000.

Participation Rates
Due to a number of interrelated socio-economic factors, the working-age
population has become increasingly active in the labour force since 1962. The
"participation rate," which measures the number of persons in the labour force as a
percentage of noninstitutional population 14 years of age and over, has increased
steadily.    In 1962, the participation rate was 52.0 per cent, while in 1972 it was
 ANALYTICAL AND STATISTICAL SUPPLEMENT
R 63
estimated at 57.5 per cent. The most significant factor contributing to this development is a marked increase in the female participation rate, which grew from 28.5
per cent in 1962 to 38.0 per cent in 1972, a growth of one-third over the 10-year
period. In 1972 the male participation rate of 77.3 per cent was fractionally less
than that of 1971, estimated at 77.7 per cent.

BRITISH COLUMBIA
Living in a consumer-oriented economy, it is not uncommon to see a family
unit with more than one person being employed. This is especially true for those
families whose children have attained a degree of independence or are attending
educational institutions. The desire to increase material wealth, in effect, has caused
families to encourage mothers or wives to return to the labour force.
A change in family formation since the 1950's has resulted in an increase in
the number of females participating in the labour force. At the same time, the
average family size has been reduced. As a result of declining family size, married
women have found it easier to join the labour force. Inflationary pressures, too,
have forced many married women to seek employment in order that their family
incomes might be supplemented. Males earning low incomes may not be able to
maintain a "socially acceptable" standard of living. Under these circumstances,
wives and mothers have found it necessary to assist the family in financial terms.
Additionally, a greater degree of female labour force participation is attributed
to their desire for socio-economic equality or independence. Contemporary women,
generally, have rejected the traditional convention implying that "the women's place
is in the home." For this reason, especially amongst the educated females, there
exists a new and higher degree of ambition in competing for various occupations.
Labour Force
The rapid increases in population and participation rates are reflected in British
Columbia's labour-force growth. In 1972, the Provincial labour force was estimated
to have reached 951,000 persons. This represents an increase of 361,000 or 61.2
per cent from the 1962 labour-force figure, which stood at 590,000 persons. In
terms of average annual rate growth, the Provincial labour force increased 4.8 per
cent annually over the decade 1962 to 1972. Few, if any, industrialized regions can
match this pace.
The rapid labour force growth over the decade is primarily attributable to the
remarkable increase in the female labour force. In the past 10 years the female
labour force almost doubled. In 1962 the female labour force figure was 160,000
but, by 1972, this figure was increased to 315,000, representing an average annual
increase of 6.9 per cent. The 6.9-per-cent rate was even more astonishing in comparison with the decade's male labour-force growth, which averaged 4.0 per cent
per year.
In 1972 the Provincial labour force increased by 40,000 persons or 4.4 per
cent above the 1971 labour-force figure of 911,000. The 4.4-per-cent rate was
relatively mild in comparison with the high levels experienced in the latter half of
the 1960's, during which period the labour force was augmented by both net in-
migration and the outcome of the post-World War II baby boom. In the last few
years, however, the entrance rate of the now mature members of the baby boom into
the labour force had tapered off.
Due to seasonal and other economic factors the labour force fluctuated from
month to month in 1972. In the first quarter, when business activity was moderate,
fewer people entered the labour force than in either the second and third quarters—■
931,000, 959,000, and 967,000 persons respectively. The labour force dropped in
the final quarter to 945,000. The rapid rise in the labour force during the second
and third quarters was primarily attributed to students seeking employment. In the
month of luly, for example, the number of 14 to 19-year-olds in the labour force
was 144,000, an increase of 31,000 from the previous month.   Among the 20 to
 ANALYTICAL AND STATISTICAL SUPPLEMENT
R 65
24-year-olds there was a high increase in the month of May when university students
were anxiously engaged in search for summer employment. In May, there were
140,000 looking for jobs, a climb of 8,000 from April of the same year. For the
other age-groups, the number of people participating in the labour force throughout
the year remained relatively stable—very little changes were detected in the monthly
figures, as depicted in Table 6.
The largest component of the labour force was the 25 to 44-year-olds. In 1972
there were 424,000 persons belonging to this group in the labour force. This
accounted for approximately 45 per cent of the total. The 45 to 64-year-olds were

Employment
With regard to employment growth, the British Columbia record can be considered impressive in the last decade. In 1962 the number of persons employed
stood at 551,000, but in 1972 this figure had increased by 328,000 persons to have
reached the 879,000 mark. This represented an increase of 60 per cent in 10 years
or an average annual increase in excess of 4.7 per cent.

In 1972, however, employment was growing at a slightly slower pace in comparison with the average annual employment growth rate recorded in the past decade.
In 1972 the employment increased by 32,000 or 3.8 per cent over the 1971 employment figure of 847,000. Male employment made up 66.8 per cent of total employment. It should be noted, however, female employment was increasing at 5.0 per
cent compared to the male employment growth rate of 2.9 per cent.
As indicated by the preceding statistics, the demand for labour in 1972 did not
measure up to the expectations generated a year earlier. Regained economic
strength in 1971 stimulated employment growth in that year. In view of available
indicators, most experts had predicted that the general economic upturn would be
continued throughout 1972 and further suggested that employment growth would be
even more promising. The employment forecast, however, proved to be overly
optimistic as employment growth in 1972 was insufficient to accommodate the year's
labour-force growth. Of equal significance was the fact that employment was growing at a slower rate than that recorded in 1971.
 R 68
BRITISH COLUMBIA
Consistent with historical trends, the monthly demand for labour fluctuated in
1972. Mainly due to cyclical and seasonal factors, the rate of economic growth was
relatively low in January in comparison with the other months of the year. For this
reason, the number of persons employed stood at 832,000, the lowest monthly employment figure for 1972. As the economy picked up additional fuel during the
summer months, the demand for human resources also increased in that period.
Employment peak, in fact, was reached in July when there were 926,000 persons
being employed in the Provincial economy. This represented an increase of 35,000
or 3.9 per cent over the same period in 1971. The 3.9-per-cent rate, however, was
less than the July 1971 employment growth rate of 5.7 per cent.
Unemployment
Due to less than expected employment growth, unemployment remained high
throughout 1972. In the past year, 71,000 persons or 7.5 per cent of the Provincial
labour force were in the ranks of the unemployed. The 7.5-per-cent unemployment
rate, moreover, was higher than the decade's average annual rate of 6.5 per cent.
High unemployment appeared to spread over the entire labour force, in that
the fully trained as well as the untrained or inexperienced encountered difficulties in
their search for employment. According to statistics released by the Federal Department of Manpower and Immigration, the demand for university graduates, including
those with postgraduate degrees, had markedly declined in 1972. Other groups
which traditionally enjoyed high employment prospects were plagued with a less than
good year. People belonging to the age-groups of 25 to 44 years and 45 to 64 years
experienced annual unemployment rates estimated at 5.4 and 5.7 per cent respectively. The most vulnerable to unemployment were the age-groups of 14 to 24 years,
in that over 15 per cent of their membership was jobless. Of course, the young were
put in a disadvantaged position in view of their limited training and job experience.
The 12-monthly unemployment rates are again graphically presented in Figure
11. This figure illustrates the dynamic relationship of the labour force, employment,
and unemployment. Whenever the labour force is growing faster than unemployment or alternatively is decreasing slower than employment, the unemployment rate
increases due to the fact that it is a residual statistic derived from the other two.
From Figure 11 one can readily see what was happening each month in the labour

that of employment, the unemployment rate moved upwards from February. Conversely, employment was growing more rapidly than labour force in July, thus caused
the month's unemployment rate to fall.

Unemployment conditions in British Columbia over the past decade were
among the worst in Canada. Over the period 1962 to 1972, the average annual
unemployment rate for British Columbia was 6.5 per cent, while that of Canada
was 5.1 per cent. In comparison with unemployment rates for Ontario and the
Prairie Provinces, those of British Columbia were even worse. Seasonally adjusted
unemployment rates also showed the Province's labour sector performed poorly in
1972. By excluding seasonal fluctuations, these rates provided a more realistic
monthly performance of the labour sector of the economy. In 1972, seasonally
adjusted unemployment rates ranged from a high of 8.3 per cent in December to a
low of 6.5 per cent in February, as illustrated in Table 10.

Employment' by Industry
Relatively mediocre employment growth was reflected in the industrial composite employment index for 1972, which was estimated to have reached 147.7
(1961 = 100). This index, based solely on the survey of firms with 20 or more
employees, represented an increase of 3.2 points over the revised 1971 index of
144.5. The less than potential employment growth rate was primarily attributed to
decreased employment in the forestry and construction industries. In part, lower
than average employment growth was also caused by virtually stagnant growth in the
manufacturing sector, specifically in the wood products sector.
The forestry industry (primarily logging) registered a fall in employment, as
its employment index declined from 136.3 in 1971 to 120.0 in 1972. A significant
reason for this was that the industry had experienced poor labour-management relations during the summer months. In addition to the four-month-long strike (April
to August) staged by some 800 fallers, a large-scale dispute occurred in June and
July involving an additional 3,200 loggers. In this regard, the monthly employment
indexes for June and July were estimated at 60.7 and 99.1 respectively; significantly
lower than the indexes for the same months in 1971. Employment growth in the
mining and milling industry, however, was promising in 1972, resulting in an increase
of 4.3 points above the 1971 index of 154.9. The production of minerals and metals
on increasingly larger scales probably contributed to the mining industry's employment growth.

A decrease in employment was recorded in the construction industry in 1972.
The industry's employment index dropped from 166.4 in 1971 to 151.2 in 1972.
Again, decline was largely the result of labour-management difficulties. The absence
of mutually agreeable solutions in the early stages of collective bargaining caused
Construction Labour Relations Association, the bargaining agent for many construction firms, to a lockout on May 1, 1972. The dispute led to a reduction of 54.8
points in the May employment index, from 161.9 in April to 107.1 in May.
Employment in the manufacturing industry was only slightly improved from
1971 to 1972. In 1972, the manufacturing industry employment index was estimated at 129.7, an increase of 1.2 points above the 1971 index of 128.5. Again the
less-than-potential employment growth rate was primarily caused by labour-manage-

ment conflicts in the wood-products sector. Employment growth in the other manufacturing sectors, however, was more promising, resulting in a positive, although
slow, growth in total manufacturing employment.
Employment growth was healthy in the other industries of the Provincial economy. The transportation, communication, and other utilities industry registered a
climb of 3.3 points from the 1971 employment index of 135.5 to the 1972 index,
estimated at 138.8. The trade employment index stepped up from 151.1 in 1971
to 160.1 in 1972. The service industry enjoyed the highest rate of employment
growth in that the industry's employment index accelerated from 203.1 in 1971 to
214.4 in 1972. For the most part, economic and employment growth rates are
expected to rise in these industries as population increases.
Labour Income
Total wages and salaries in 1972 were estimated to be $5,980 million,
representing an increase in current dollars of $573 million or 10.6 per cent over
the 1971 aggregate wages and salaries of $5,407 million. Taking inflationary
pressures into account, however, the increase in real income was markedly smaller.
Using the Consumer Price Index (1961 = 100) as an approximation of inflation,
the yearly increase was estimated to be $240 million or a 5.9-per-cent increase
in terms of constant dollars.
The Consumer Price Index for 1972 was estimated at 139.2, up sharply from
1971's level of 133.3. For British Columbia, this is highly inflationary, in that
the cost of living in 1972 was raised by 4.5 per cent. Because of price increases
in food, clothing, housing, and recreational services, much of the Province's total
money income increases were therefore illusionary.

The rise in total wages and salaries in 1972, as in past years, needs little explanation. Each industry in the economy increases its workers' wages and salaries
from years to year. In addition, employment has enjoyed positive annual gains.
Since these factors are the most significant variable in causing aggregate labour
income to grow, it is therefore hardly surprising to find total income has increased.
With regard to average weekly wages and salaries, they continued to increase
in 1972. The average weekly income for the industrial composite was estimated to
be $161.69, up $9.19 over the revised 1971 level of $152.50.

As presented in Figure 16 and Table 13, employees of the construction industry
continued to enjoy the highest level of average weekly wages and salaries in 1972.
Based on eight months of revised and preliminary figures, construction workers
earned an estimated weekly wage of $249.72, representing an increase of $25.04
over the revised 1971 wage of $224.68. A significant factor was that construction
workers had enjoyed an additional one hour of work per week.
Increasingly greater demand for Provincial primary products in the foreign
market and favourable prices had pushed the wage-levels of the forestry and mining
industries upward in 1972. As mentioned earlier, mineral and metal ore production
was expanding rapidly to meet the hungry manufacturing ovens of Japan and other
nations. The quantity of British Columbia lumber sold in the international market
in 1972 had increased steadily. In 1972, average weekly wages and salaries for the
forestry and mining workers were estimated to be $192.47 and $203.69 respectively.
The level of average weekly wages and salaries for 1972 was lowest in the
service industry, estimated at $107.13. Like any other industry, the wage-level is
chiefly determined by its ability to pay. In this regard, the service industry had
traditionally lacked the ability to pay higher wages, given the nature of its products.
Furthermore, the degree of competition is relatively greater in the service industry
vis-a-vis other sectors of the economy.

Hours of Work
As can be seen from Table 14 and Figure 11, there is very little change in the
average weekly hours of hourly rated wage-earners from year to year. In the past
year, average weekly hours in the manufacturing, mining, and construction industries
had increased only fractionally. Average working-time of the manufacturing industry was estimated to be 37.8 hours per week in 1972, up 0.6 hour from 1971.
Mining employees worked an average of 39.8 hours per week, slightly up from the
1971 average of 39.5 hours per week. In the construction industry, workers received an extra hour of work in 1972 when average weekly hours were estimated
at 37.6, as compared with 36.6 per week in 1971.
Reporting hours of work is informative and interesting in that the information,
in part, explains the improvement of total labour income and average weekly wages
and salaries. As mentioned earlier, all of the above three industries enjoyed improvement in the level of average weekly wages and salaries.

Labour Disputes in British Columbia, 1972
Technical Notes
The British Columbia Department of Labour has been collecting and reporting
labour-dispute statistics since 1918. Since 1970, new techniques with respect to
collecting and reporting labour-dispute statistics have been introduced. Classifications of disputes by industry in 1970 were made in accordance with Statistics Canada's Standard Industrial Classification System. The principal effect of this change
is that disputes in the sawmilling or pulp and paper sectors are now recorded under
"Manufacturing" rather than under "Forest Industries." The major groups under
the SIC Code are as follows:
1. Agriculture.
2. Forestry (Primarily Logging).
3. Fishing and Trapping.
4. Mines, Quarries, and Oil Wells.
5. Manufacturing.
6. Construction.
7. Transportation, Communication, and Other Utilities.
8. Trade.
9. Finance, Insurance, and Real Estate.
10. Community, Business, and Personal Service.
11. Public Administration and Defence.

In reporting labour-dispute information, it has always been the policy of this
Department to include only those data which can be accurately estimated. In
utilizing these statistics it should therefore be kept in mind that they deal only with
the principal parties to the dispute and do not include the following:
(a) Workers who are not on strike, but are unable to work for reasons
of respecting the picket lines at the firm or firms involved in a dispute.
(b) Workers who are employees of other plants, but are unable to work
for lack of materials or other reasons directly attributed to the strike.
In calculating the number of workers involved and man-days lost by industry,
some difficulties were encountered. The number of construction workers locked
out by Construction Labour Relations Association varied within the period of the
conflict. The construction workers belonging to those unions which had a settlement with CLRA at the time of the lockout and who were unable to continue
work, fall into the indirect workers category. In this way it is possible to arrive
at a more realistic number of man-days lost in the CLRA dispute. The figure of
23,000 construction workers locked out is derived by estimating the actual number of workers effectively locked out with CLRA agreements; making allowances
for unemployment at the time the lockout order was given, and making allowances
for those union members who already had signed agreements with CLRA.
The International Woodworkers of America strike against Forest Industrial
Relations Association, in which an estimated 28,000 workers were involved, affected
both the forestry and manufacturing industries. Of the total, 4,000 were engaged
in primary logging operations while 24,000 were employed in wood products.
The United Steelworkers of America strike against Cominco was of a similar
nature, in that approximately 1,000 strikers were engaged in mining operations
while 2,800 workers were employed in the company's smelters. Accordingly,
the former are listed under "Mining, Quarries, and Oil Wells" and the latter are
recorded under "Manufacturing."
Definitions
Dispute—For the purposes of definition, strikes and lockouts are recorded
under the single heading of "Labour Dispute." Individual disputes are not classified as being either strikes or lockouts and no indication is given of their legality.
Labour disputes under Federal jurisdiction and those that were contrary to the
Mediation Commission Act are also included.
Workers involved—Only those workers whose unions are directiy involved
in the strike or lockout are reported. Where the number of workers involved varied
in the course of the stoppage, the maximum number is shown.
Employer—Firm(s) employing the workers reporting on strike or locked out.
Duration—The duration of each stoppage is calculated in terms of working-
days, counting the starting date and all subsequent normal working-days, up to the
termination date.
Man-days—Duration in man-days is calculated by multiplying duration in
working-days by the number of workers involved. For disputes commencing before 1972, only time loss during 1972 is considered. Variations in the number of
workers involved in the course of a stoppage also are taken into account in the
calculation, as far as this is practicable. The man-days' loss figure shows the total
number of man-days lost without regard to whether or not the workers made idle
were employed elsewhere during the strike.
 ANALYTICAL AND STATISTICAL SUPPLEMENT

Major Developments
Major labour-management breakdowns in the key industries resulted in the
highest number of man-days lost in the labour history of British Columbia in 1972.
Total man-days lost were in excess of 2 million and involved over 100,000 workers.
Particularly damaging were disputes which occurred in the construction, manufacturing, forestry (logging), and public administration sectors of the economy.
Their combined loss was estimated at 1.9 million man-days or over 90 per cent of
total man-days idled for the past year. The magnitude of the disputes, furthermore, pushed the ratio of man-days idled per striker to 19.1:1, a steep climb from
the 1971 ratio of 5.3:1. It should also be noted that over 95 per cent of the disputes occurred in the first eight months of 1972.
The May 1 Construction Labour Relations Association lockout visibly crippled
the construction industry for a short period of time. During the duration of the
dispute, many projects, including school and hospital construction, were temporarily halted. The dispute in which 23,000 construction workers were involved
caused a loss of over 1 million man-days.
Failure to reach agreement regarding wages and other conditions of work between the IWA and Forest Industrial Relations (bargaining agent for various
forestry firms) led to a large-scale strike on June 22. The duration of the dispute
was approximately three weeks. However, it involved 28,000 workers and resulted in over 400,000 man-days idled. It is equally interesting to note that the
relatively lengthy fallers' dispute against various large forestry companies markedly
undermined the industry's productive capacity. Due to the shortage of logs, many
forestry business firms had to shut down a number of operations, which, in turn,
resulted in the lay-off of a large number of workers.
Labour-management relations difficulties were also witnessed in the public sector. Five municipalities in the Lower Mainland were struck by the employees,
mainly members of Canadian Union of Public Employees. For the first time in
many years, Provincially employed highway workers held a number of one-day
strikes against the Government of British Columbia.
The Air Traffic Controllers' strike against the Federal Government was also
of interest. During the dispute, Air Transportation was disrupted and caused many
businesses depending on air service to lay off many of their employees.
The short, but economically significant, longshoremen's strike against the B.C.
Maritime Employers' Association tied up foreign trade in British Columbia. For
nearly two weeks, cargo-handling in British Columbia ports was idled with the fear
of a back-up of wheat deliveries to foreign markets. A special House of Commons
session resulted in the cessation of the strike.

Labour Organizations, 1972
The trends that have been apparent during the past few years within the labour
movement in British Columbia continued through 1972. Structural changes within
the movement were numerous and significant, with several new unions being formed
during the year and a number of mergers also taking place. The total growth in
union membership from 1971 to 1972 was considerable and, compared to the growth
rates of the 60's, it is of average magnitude. Despite this solid growth in union
membership, organized labour constituted a fractionally smaller portion of the total
number of wage-earners in the Province this year than last year.
Information regarding labour organizations in British Columbia is the result of
data analysis conducted by the Research Branch. The bulk of the information is
collected under the Federal Corporations and Labour Unions Returns Act by Statistics Canada in conjunction with the Canada Department of Labour and the British
Columbia Department of Labour. The Research Branch supplements this information with data collected through our annual Survey of Labour Organizations.
Structural Developments
Some very major structural changes occurred within the labour movement in
British Columbia in 1972. Possibly the major structural development was the
formation of the United Paperworkers International Union. This union was the
result of a decision by the International Brotherhood of Pulp, Sulphite, and Paper
Mill Workers and the United Papermakers and Paperworkers to merge.
The Canadian Aluminum Smelter and Allied Workers obtained a certification
during 1972 for the Alcan Aluminum employees at Kitimat. The Fort Nelson Forest
Industries Ltd., Lumber and Timber Workers; the Canadian Metal Trades Association; Vancouver Police Officers' Association; and the North Central Welders and
Fabricators Guild were also certified for the first time. The White Spot Employees'
Union changed its name to Canadian Food and Associated Services. The American
Newspaper Guild deleted the word "American" from its title in order to reflect its
international composition.

i As of January 1972.
The number of unions operating within the Province was 125. These unions
had a combined total of 1,079 locals operating in British Columbia in 1972, compared to 1,035 in 1971. Twenty unions had a membership greater than 5,000. The
largest by far was the International Woodworkers of America, followed by the
British Columbia Teachers' Federation and the British Columbia Government Employees' Union. These 20 large unions account for approximately two-thirds of the
total union membership.
Union Membership
The 1972 British Columbia union membership was 332,091. This was an
increase of 4.9 per cent or 15,504 workers over the 1971 total of 316,587. A 4.9-
per-cent growth rate may be considered average in view of the rates prevalent in the
60's.

 ANALYTICAL AND STATISTICAL SUPPLEMENT
R 95
The total union membership represents 41.8 per cent of the total number of
wage-earners in the Province. This percentage compares with 42.0 per cent in 1971.
The smaller percentage for 1972 is an indication of a decline in the degree of
organization of the labour force that could potentially be organized (paid workers).
The reason for the decline this year was that although the union movement registered
solid growth, the number of wage-earners increased by near record numbers and
hence, outstripped this growth. A decline in the degree of organization was apparent
in the 60's and the trend seems to be continuing.
In 1972, 22.9 per cent of the total union membership was women. This figure
compares with 22.7 per cent in 1971 and 21.2 per cent in 1970. In actual numbers
the increase from 1971 to 1972 was 3,968, and this increase brings the number of
women organized to 75,884. The number of men organized increased by 11,536,
bringing the male total to 256,207 persons or 77.1 per cent of the total organized
work force.

2 Estimates.
Male wage-earners continue to be more highly organized that female wage-
earners. Of the potential number of men who could conceivably belong to a union,
48.9 per cent actually were organized. The comparable figure for women was 28.0
per cent. These percentages compare with a degree of organization in 1971 (revised)
of 48.9 per cent for men and 28.4 per cent for women. As described previously,
women comprised a larger portion of the total membership in 1972 than in 1971
and we may, therefore, conclude that the decline in the degree of organization for
women was solely due to the growth in the number of female wage-earners outstripping the growth in female union membership.
Industrial Distribution
Comparisons between the membership of an industry for one year and another
are difficult to make and are often suspect. This is due to the methodology of the
classification of the union members by industry. Certain facts are apparent from
Table 4 and a careful scrutiny of individual union memberships. Possibly the most
significant development from 1971 to 1972 was the large growth of the service
industry union membership. The growth, over 10,000 persons, was primarily concentrated in the school, health and welfare, and miscellaneous service sectors. The
construction industry registered a significant increase and other membership increases were recorded in all the other industries, with the exceptions of manufacturing
and trade, which showed slight declines.

Note—Industries are defined by example in the Standard Industrial Classification Manual, Statistics Canada,

Specific industrial year-to-year comparisons should not be made due to the methodology of industry allocation.
Women union members were concentrated in the service industry and in the
communication and utilities sector of the transportation, communication, and other
utilities industry; the food and beverage sector of the manufacturing industry; and
the trade industry. This is to be expected, of course, as these are the traditional areas
where women have found employment. Just over 72 per cent of all the women
union members in the Province worked in the service industry in 1972, compared
with just under 70 per cent in 1971. Male union members were not concentrated in
any one industry.
An interesting observation regarding the industrial distribution of the Province's
union membership is the fact that males clearly predominated the union membership
of every industry with one exception. In the service industry, women constituted
46.5 per cent of all the union members in the industry. Men constituted the bulk
of the union membership in all the other industries, ranging from just under 70 per
cent in trade to 99.9 per cent in construction.
Union Affiliation
The tabulation of the data received for 1972 showed there to be no major
changes in the congress affiliation of the British Columbia unions. The distribution
of the Province's union membership and union locals by congress affiliation is shown
on Table 6.
A small shift in the union membership was apparent from the international,
more appropriately called "continental," unions to the national unions from 1971 to
1972. The continental unions in 1972 had organized 59.3 per cent of the total union
membership. These figures compare with 59.7 per cent in 1971 and 61.0 per cent
in 1970. This trend is primarily due to the fact that the national unions dominate
the service industry—the fastest-growing industry in the Province, and the industry
where the greatest success in organizing more workers has been attained. The much
 R

discussed Canadian nationalism seems to have had an insignificant impact from 1971
to 1972 on the total membership of the international unions and the solely Canadian
unions.
