Last year, quite a few people stopped talking about unemployment and started doing something about it. Through the Local Initia- tives Program, they created over jobs. And improved the quality of life for thousands, of their neighbours. LIP, in short, was a real success. This year, starting right now, it's back. And we're looking for ideas. Ideas from pri- vate individuals, organizations, clubs and mu- nicipalities. Ideas for projects that will benefit as many people as possible while creating useful work for those who would otherwise be unem- ployed. There's lots of scope for imagination. The guidelines are simple. Your Canada Manpower Centre has complete details. Applications are being accepted any time between now and December But member, LIP grants can cover project cosCS until May 31st, 1973. So start planning your project now. You may be surprised how far a little initia- tive will go.
