Good morning, and thank you for coming. I appreciate the presentations by all organizations.
I'm from Saskatchewan. In Saskatchewan we're having similar conversations among Northern Medical Services, Saskatchewan Health, FNUC, as well as INAC and other groups. We are having similar experiences and similar thought processes on the idea behind increasing indigenous participation to be professionals in various fields, including physicians and nursing, and the list goes on.
That's really great work that you're doing, but there's the question of statistics. The presentation you provided is really important. I'm sorry if I missed it, but how can the federal government continue the support that you're seeking from various levels, including federal? That would be helpful.
