The Act respecting parental insurance sanctions the role of the Conseil, and the operating procedure stemming from its business model bodes well for the future.
To manage a measure as important as parental insurance, it is crucial to take into account the concerns of parent recipients and those of contributors. This is why the Conseil de gestion de l’assurance parentale is therefore supervised by a board of directors comprised of representatives of public and private sector employers as well as unionized, non-unionized and self-employed workers. Appointed by the Québec government, the members work together to ensure that the Plan functions smoothly and that it benefits Québec society.
The concern over unified action is reflected in the administrative agreements the Conseil has concluded with its partners who are in charge of day-to-day activities and who offer client services: the Ministère de l’Emploi et de la Solidarité sociale, Revenu Québec and the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec. Such partnerships allow for optimal use of available resources.
The pursuit of efficiency, consistency and concertation between various players characterises the Conseil’s endeavours. The Conseil relies on a small multi-disciplinary, 12-person team to take charge of strategic action related to planning, management, funding and communications, in support of the board of directors and in consultation with its partners.
