Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 14, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Indian program thrives THUNDER BAY (CP) A self-improvement program for Indian girls has operated suc- cessfully since its inception here 1% years ago. The nurse's aid program, as it is called, was originally con- ducted by the jpecial education division of the Indian affairs de- partment. Early this year, how- ever, the course has been taken over by the Lakehead board of education. "It's somewhat of a self-im- provement explained Polly Organ, a public health nurse who teaches the course. "The girls learn how to be good mothers and wives and at the same time learn hospital proce- dures." She said the course should not be confused with the accredited nursing assistant program of- fered elsewhere. In addition to covering sub- jects such as child care, first aid, personal hygiene and grooming, the 16 girls now tak- ing the course receive practical training hi hospital procedures. Time is also devoted to aca- demic subjects. Mrs. Organ said some stu- dents have been offered perma- nent employment at various in- stitutions following successful completion of the course.

By MAUREEN JAMIESON Family Editor It is only a little more than year since the Royal Coramis sdon on the Status of Women wesented its final report to th jovernment. Sylva M. Gelber, director of the Women's Bureau of Labour Canada, says in Women's Bu au '71, that the report has ucceeded in throwing into fo- us many inequities that bav< iot previously been recognized Canadians hi general, she ays, appear to have been un ware of the existence of injus- ces in practices relating to le status of women. They are nly now commencing to take ction to remove unfair prac- ces. The report, containing more than 160 separate recommenda- tions, was made public in De- cember 1970. At that time the I Prime Minister declared that I in denying women the full op portunity of equal participation, "we are denying to our society benefits which we can HI afford to lose." "Within its own household, the federal government has re- cently initiated a program of equal opportunity for said Ms. Gelber, and has ap- pointed a co-ordinator charged with responsibilities affecting seme women who work for the federal government. The government has also taken steps to ensure that when HELP US TO HELP OTHERS!

Canada Manpower refers a worker seeking employment, there is no discrimination be- cause of sex; except on a bona fide occupational qualification, like modelling clothes. Provinces have also been ac- tive. Laws like The Human Rights Act, 1971, in Alberta, re- late to the employment of wo- men, particularly in the field of human rights. All but one province now have statutes re- lating specifically to equal pay. "The subject of equal pay for equal work has been of social concern for more than a cen- according to Ms. Gelber, and has had government recog- nition since 1913. However much of this legisla- tion could only be activated bv written complaint, she said, and working women were reluc- ant to jeopardize much-need- ed employment. The significance of new equal pay laws which became part of the Canada Labour (Stan- dards) Code a few months ago, she added, could be great. Wage studies have shown many working women db not receive the same wages as men for similar work. "Examples of wage differentials from one- third and up may be found in occupations ranging all the way from factory hands to uni- versity professors." It is difficult to understand why some trade unions, parti- cularly when they speak in the name of their female members, said Ms. Gelber, fail to press for the full implementation of equal pay laws. "Clearly the principal o! equal pay is one that is easy to achieve. As long as of- ficially appointed boards and trade unions themselves look upon the equal pay law with a blind eye, it is expecting too much from human nature to hope that employers will abide by she said.
