To His Excellency the Right Honourable Viscount Willingdon, G.C.S.I., G.C.M.G., G.C.I.E., G.B.E., Governor General and Commander in Chief of the Dominion of Canada.

May it Please Your Excellency:

The undersigned has the honour to present to Your Excellency the Annual Report of the Department of Public Printing and Stationery for the year ended March 31, 1929.

I have the honour to be,

Your Excellency's most obedient servant,

FERNAND RINFRET,

Secretary of State and Minister charged with administration of Department of Public Printing and Stationery.

Ottawa, October, 1929.

INTRODUCTORY STATEMENT

Sir, In practically every branch of activity the fiscal year 1928-29 showed increased production or business as compared with the preceding year, the record of which also had been high. The gross cash turnover for the year, $7,450,996.03, shows an increase over the preceding year of $158,522.16, this increase being, however, less marked than that of the fiscal year 1927-28 over the preceding year when the increase in the cash turnover reached the high figure of $820,422.73.

The work of printing the Revised Statutes of Canada, 1927, English and French, was mentioned in last year's report as representing one of the important features of that year. As then stated, the four volumes including the Statutes proper had been printed and distributed before the close of the fiscal year 1927-28 and the Statutes Revision Commission had in hand the task of preparing the index volume; this volume did not reach the printer as early as had been hoped, but the copies were received in time to permit distribution during January, 1929. The record for the completed work, English and French, falls within the fiscal year 1928-29, and is as follows: English Statutes: 6,000 sets of five volumes each, four volumes containing the Statutes proper in 4,302 pages, and an index volume of 620 pages; total number of printed pages, approxi- mately, 30,000,000; cost, $74,409.11. French Statutes: 1,500 sets of five volumes each, four volumes containing Statutes proper in 4,544 pages and an index volume of 638 pages; total number of printed pages, 7,773,000; cost, $39,105.18. The distribution and sale of sets of the Revised Statutes of Canada at $10 each per set proceeded on the lines anticipated. The volumes were bound generally in stiff buckram; a few volumes in leather at a higher price are stocked, but experience has shown there is little demand for the same. The supply on hand will probably be adequate to meet all needs for the next year or two.

The Printing Branch records appreciable increase of work in practically all lines and closed the year with a profit of $40,583.85; the aim is of course to work at cost and in so large a business this amount of profit, though somewhat above the average, cannot be regarded as unreasonable.

The Stationery Branch reports increased sales with satisfactory conditions; the profit of $46,088.12 reported for the year will no doubt permit a reduction in commissions hitherto imposed on certain lines of goods.

The business of the Distribution Division, now styled for convenience the Division of Documents, continues high. The burden of the distribution of documents to libraries, etc., under P.C. 1471, August, 1927, falls of course on this division, and while the work involved is considerable, ample evidence comes from representatives of the legislative, university and public libraries of Canada to show that the new system introduced under that regulation and explained in last year's report is working out very satisfactorily. The report of this branch shows that during the year 607 separate documents were mailed on this list, the list including approximately 175 libraries (of all classes) and official personages and institutions entitled under the regulation to receive all documents not of a confidential nature. It is of interest to note that the Department of Agriculture is much in the lead in the number of publications thus despatched to libraries, being responsible for no less than 133 documents, or more than one-fourth of the total; the House of Commons publications number 89, the Department of the Interior 76, the Department of Mines 68, and the Dominion Bureau of Statistics 44, with smaller numbers for other depart- ments; in the case of eight departments the only publication distributed is the annual report.

6 DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC PRINTING AND STATIONERY

The increased activities of the department have necessitated some minor additions to personnel. In the past the personnel figures appearing in these pages have been quoted as for December 31, statistics for previous years having been on a calendar year basis. Hereafter the figures as for December 31 will be continued down to the year 1921, and beginning with the year 1922 figures will be quoted for the close of the fiscal year, namely, March 31. The personnel statement of previous years, modified thus from 1922 onwards, and with the figures as for March 31, 1929, added, is therefore as follows:

1891 (December 31) 341 1921 730

1901 511 1922 (March 31) 742

1911 861 1923 705

1915 1, 160 1924 719

1916 1,240 1925 685

1917 1,300 1926 689

1918 1, 169 1927 690

1919 1,134 1928 696

1920 703 1929 714

As was mentioned in the report of last year the position list established by the Civil Service Commission at the time of re-organization in 1920 and numbering 705 positions had become confused and complicated, and with the co-operation of the commission a new list of 691 positions was established with effect as from August 1, 1927. Increased activities in different branches, however, have compelled the addition of six new positions, five of which relate to the Copperplate Map Engraving Branch and one to the Stationery Branch. The Copperplate Map Engraving workers constitute a group whose actual duties are performed, save in the case of one employee, outside the department, an arrangement having been effected some years ago with the Department of the Interior, the Department of Marine and Fisheries, and the Department of Mines, whereby copperplate map engravers whose services might be needed by these departments respectively would, while retaining their connection with the Department of Public Printing and Stationery, be attached for duty to the department concerned, interchanges between the departments to be made as conditions might require; as a matter of fact occasions for interchange have been few and the members of the group have seldom shifted from the particular department to which they were first assigned. On the other hand the work of the group has increased considerably and several new appointments have been necessary. First the Department of Marine and Fisheries and, during the past year, the Department of Mines, required additional help, and the Civil Service Commission was requested to make the necessary appointments. The commission reported it impossible to secure the additional workers in Canada and one copperplate map engrager was brought from Great Britain in 1924 for employment in the Department of Marine and Fisheries and, during the past fiscal year, a second was engaged in Switzerland for employment in the Department of Mines. The difficulty of securing assistance of this class and the prospect of this difficulty increasing as the demands of the departments grow and as replacements of present employees may become necessary caused action to be taken looking to the training of copperplate map engravers in Canada by means of a system of apprenticeship in this department and, with the co-operation of the Civil Service Commission, four apprentice positions were accordingly created and three appointments made thereto, the fourth apprenticeship position remaining unfilled for the present.

The difference between the position list, thus increased to 697, and the number of employees (714) on the payroll as on March 31, 1929, is due to vacancies at that date on the one hand and temporary workers on the other; vacancies at that date totalled 11 and temporaries 28, leaving a net excess of 17 over the position list; it is not unlikely that in a number of cases these temporaries may be converted into further permanent positions because of

ANNUAL REPORT, 1928-29 7

increasing activities. A review of the year shows 13 separations and 31 appoint- ments, a net increase of 18, the appointments representing 6 replacements, 4 new positions, and 21 temporaries.

The amount expended on new plant during the year was below the average and consisted only of one motor truck purchased in replacement, in accordance with the practice now obtaining for some years, and a number of machines for the Bindery Branch, also chiefly in replacement; the principal features of the new bindery equipment were 3 book sewing machines and 1 oversewing machine with motor, also a gluing machine newly on the market. All these and other items of new equipment will aid in securing an increased production without addition to personnel. The items of new equipment and their respective costs were as follows:

Shipping and Receiving Division

1 utility express motor truck SI, 890 00

Bindery Division

3 book sewing machines 8, 360 08

1 oversewing machine with motor 4, 148 00

1 scoring machine with motor 504 00

1 book sander with motor 985 00

1 gluing machine '. 1,383 07

Total $17, 270 15

For plant repairs and renewals there was, out of an appropriation of $30,000, an expenditure of $29,791.11, some of the larger purchases being 200 lumber platforms for the Chief Mechanic's Division ($516.85); 2 moulds and various parts for monotype machines ($5,358); matrices and parts for Linotype Division ($3,388.16); quoins and type cabinets for the Hand Composing Div- ision ($1,707); 1 moulding base for the Stereotype Division ($210); 185 num- bering machines, 1 steel cabinet, 100 perforating blades, etc., for the Press Division ($3,684.84); and 24 cutters and extractors, 14 guillotine knives, 1 cutting machine, 2 dies, etc., for Bindery Division ($718.89).

As was mentioned in an earlier report, the department availed itself some years ago (1926) of the federal Act respecting compensation for injuries to employees during work, and since that date all such cases have been, as the statute requires, referred to the Workmen's Compensation Board of Ontario. Four cases were referred during the year and compensation was awarded by the Provincial Board in three cases only. The only case of a serious nature was that in which the illness of an employee in the Chief Mechanic's Division was reported to have arisen from lead poisoning; the workman, who had been but a few years in the employ of the department, had been a painter all his life but the disease had not developed until after his employment in this depart- ment where he had done but little work in the painting line. The illness of the workman in question, Mr. J. C. Stewart, had been intermittent, permitting him to return from time to time to light employment. Mr. Stewart passed away on January 31. The matter of allowances rests with the Provincial Board.

Apart from accidents and illnesses thus dealt with under the Workmen's Compensation Act there are naturally in a large industrial establishment many minor injuries and ailments arising, and these are dealt with by the Welfare Supervisor. Miss Margaret Brankin, a trained nurse who had seen service in the Great War, had filled this position since its creation in 1921, but her health compelling her resignation during the past year, the commission appointed her sister, Miss Agnes Brankin, also O.A.S., temporarily as her successor; at the date of writing it may be added that Miss Agnes Brankin was later appointed permanently to the position. The year's record of work in this small but important division shows 972 cases of treatment of employees, 208 visits to employees at their homes, and 31 visits to hospitals.

8 DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC PRINTING AND STATIONERY

As relating to these matters mention may be here fittingly made of a group insurance system established as among the officers and employees of the depart- ment, under the terms of which nearly 450 men have been enabled to secure life insurance at an attractively low premium. The system is of course wholly voluntary and entirely unofficial; that is, no departmental responsibility arises. The desirability of some such plan springs quite naturally from the fact that the payroll of the department includes several hundred men and women of the printing trades paid on the prevailing rates basis and for whom there is no official system of superannuation relief or benefit on retirement from work or death, save only that on death two month's salary is payable to the estate of the deceased. Whilst it is not surprising that most of the members of the group thus insured are of the prevailing rates classes, yet members of the clerical service who are protected by superannuation systems being equally eligible have in many instances in this way increased the protection for their families. The group insurance system, which became effective late in 1927, is for a stated period only, and the premium per thousand is susceptible of adjustment from time to time as the death rate may fluctuate. The arrange- ment is of course with a private company and a policy may be taken for $1,000 or $2,000; the insuring company declines to extend the benefits of the system to female workers. The amount of insurance thus in force at the present time is approximately $750,000.

1928-29

* In this table and in other tables which contain a column giving the total number of printed pages, the figures in the total column coincide, as a rule, with those obtained by multiplying the number of copies by the number of pages. In some cases, however, a printing job includes different sections or series which vary as to the number of copies and number of pages; the two first columns do not therefore multiply into the figures shown in the column representing the total number of pages printed. Cases of this class are denoted by an asterisk (*).
