The International Program for Professional Labour Administration (IPPLA) is a three-year capacity-building project co-financed by the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) and the Labour Program of Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC).
The project will primarily help countries in the Andean, Caribbean and Central American regions strengthen and modernize their labour policies and labour administration to reach internationally recognized core labour standards. Activities undertaken as part of the IPPLA could include workshops, seminars, conferences, collaboration on policy or legislative development, study tours and study and research exchanges, as well as initiatives aimed at increasing dialogue between governments, employees and employers. The project began in 2009 with the launch of eight sub-projects and the development of the Responsive Fund, which became operational in September 2009.
