Women Returning to the Labour Force: A First Report, Women's Bureau Careers Centre.
This first report of the Women's Bureau Careers Centre of the Ontario Department of Labour provides statistical data on the personal and social characteristics of the women who came to them as clients (women who wished to return to work), and discusses these clients and the Centre's program for them. Sections of the report are devoted to reasons for going to work, obstacles in the way, and initial achievements. The data were gathered from, and the report based upon, 732 women who came to the Centre's counselling service in downtown Toronto in the two years beginning April 1967. The program is directed primarily toward the relatively well-educated housewife who is firm but unfocused in her desire for a career. Applicants who do not fit within this area of specialization are referred to other sources of help. (mf)
