More lltan 76.000 Lots of iobs available tj OTTAWA (CP1 There was an average of full-time jobs vacant during July, Angus! and September. Statistics Can- ada reported Monday on the basis of surveys taken during i that period. The figure was sharply from in the second quar- ter of the year and from 30.500 recorded in surveys taken dur- ing the same period last year. The figures higher for all occupational groupings and for most industries this year. Statistics Canada's survey of job vacancies is taken twice a month among major employers who are asked to list the full- time jobs they have had vacant for a significant period and have not been able lo fill. Va- cancies for part-time workers, nr vacancies which arc filled quickly are not reported in the surveys. The figures arc not adjusted I'or seasonal trends in employ- ment practices. Statistics Can- ada needs more experience with the surveys before it can make seasonal adjustments. Job vacancies during the third quarter of 1372 were up 64 per cent from the second quar- ter and 99 per cent higher Uian in the tliird quarter of last year. Statistics Canada said On- tario. Quebec and the Prairie provinces showed substantial increases from last year. More than 70 per cent of all the va- cancies were recorded in those provinces. More than twn-lhird.s of the increase in job vacancies for w h i t o-cnllar workers was clause' added to protect govt. workers OTTAWA (CP) A "grand- father designed to pro- tect veteran unilingual public servants, will be included in new regulations for the govern- ment's bilingualism program, Treasury Board President C. If. Drury says. It would provide "certainty and reassurance" against job loss for some government workers with years of seniority built up who see their jobs re- classified as bilingual. Mr. Drury said in an interview. The idea would be that a lic servant who had perhaps 10 years in the serivce would not have to learn another language pven if his position was reclas- sified as one requiring a bili- ngual person. Mr. Drury's department has been working on regulations for the bilingual program since spring. The minister said he doesn't expect changes in Ihc planned regulations as the re- sult of the Liberal's loss of ma- jority government in Ihc Oct. 30 election, in which bilingualism was an issue. The program, designed lo al- low both French-and English- speaking Canadians to deal with the federal government in the language of their choice, is aimed at achieving 25-per-cent bilingualism in the federal service by 1975. recorded in clerical and sales work. Among blue-collar work- ers, the opportunities were fairly evenly distributed among the services, machine trades, bench, and structural work. billion invested in Canada WASHINGTON (CP-AP) United States investment in Canada totalled billion at HIP end of 1971, the U.S. com- merce department says.
