moved for leave to introduce Bill C-599, An Act respecting the development and implementation of a First Nations education funding plan.

Mr. Speaker, I will be brief, because I will have the opportunity to go into further detail when we debate this bill.

The purpose of this bill to develop and implement a first nations education funding plan, as its name indicates, is to lift the 2% cap that prevents the department from investing and annually increasing the allotted budget for first nations education.
