Communities across the province will be invited to send representatives to meet with top Alberta artists from the fields of visual arts and creative film and as well as instructors and workshop leaders from multi-cultural groups. OTTAWA Welfare ministers began munching through a plateful of social security reform proposals in 1973 but they left some of the thickest-skinned yet poten- tially most satisfying delights for 1974. With relative ease federal and provincial ministers agreed on increases in family allowances and Canada Pension Plan benefits and contributions. The federal government took action to boost old-age security payments. In the new the con- troversial questions of a guaranteed annual income for those unable to work and income supplements for the working poor will be discussed. In February the third in a series of federal-provincial ministerial meetings will be held to thrash out reforms suggested in a 14- point federal program un- veiled last April. welfare of- ficials on inter- governmental committees have been trying to eliminate some of the prickly problems presented by a social security overhaul Likely to overshadow their efforts will be the re- cent suggestion from the Economic Council of Canada that rising costs of social programs are help- ing to fuel inflation. Last April the ministers agreed that the federal presented to them by Welfare Minister Marc was an for a social security overhaul. They also approved increased family allowances. In at their se- cond the ministers turned to CPP amendments and the Canada Assistance Plan. They decided to tie pension benefits to cost-of-living eliminating the previous annual two-per- cent and approved increases in both payments and contributions. The provinces also won from Mr. Lalonde a com- mitment that the federal government will contribute 50 per cent of costs to cer- tain universal welfare plans. These may include nursing day care and dental care for children. Left relatively untouched by the ministers so yet considered a major policy position by the federal is an employ- ment strategy that would try to provide the poor with income through jobs rather than through welfare. One of the 14 points in a federal paper on welfare policy notes that a reform- ed social security system should remove disincen- tives that might discourage the jobless from taking ad- vantage of job or training opportunities. The paper suggested community employment programs that would provide useful work for those unemployed for ex- tended periods. The ministers will also tackle a proposal that sup- plements be paid to those who are making inade- quate incomes because of family size or low-paying or part-time work. For those unable or not expected to work because they are heads of single- i parent disabled or not employable because of lack of skill or time out of the labor force the ministers will consider provision of a guaranteed annual jncome. The federal and Manitoba governments are sponsoring a joint guaranteed annual income test in that province. Of- ficials will study the effect of guaranteed money on a selected number of families. The social security reform proposals were first announced in the throne speech last Jan. when the federal govern- ment endorsed a general philosophy that would al- low the provinces more say in federal programs. When Mr. Lalonde an- nounced the 14-point plan he offered the provinces the opportunity to vary social programs subject to adherence to minimum standards set by Parliament. For family allowances the federal government proposed an average of a child each month with a minimum payment of The allowances were to be made taxable. Most provinces have adopted the flat month proposal to go into effect Jan. 1. including Quebec and have taken ad- vantage of the chance to vary benefits according to family size and age.
