This educational handbook is a joint initiative of the Caribbean Policy Development Centre (CPDC) and the Human Resources and Skills Development Department of the Government of Canada (HRSDC). It forms part of a wider project (2007 - 2008 and 2010 - 2011) between the two organisations which is aimed at enhancing public awareness, particularly among vulnerable stakehodlers on the treatment of laboutr in the context of trade agreements.
The project is being undertaken through CPDC's National Working Committees on Trade (NWCTs). The NWCTs are networks of organisations working on trade issues in their respective countries. The groupings are cross-sectoral with involvement from the private sector, Non Governmental Organisations (NGOs), labour unions and include representatives from the diabled community, rural women and youth. There are currently seven participating NWCTs - Barbados, Trinidad, Jamaica, St. Lucia, Dominica, St. Vincent and Guyana.
