Good morning, everyone.
This is the Standing Committee on Indigenous and Northern Affairs. We are continuing our study on community capacity building on reserves.
We want to welcome our guests here on the unceded territory of the Algonquin people. Canada is in a process of reconciliation, and everyone here around the table is very cognizant that this is an important step in rectifying historic wrongs, and that the process will take an effort from all of us.
We will be hearing from Mr. Howard Grant, who is the executive director of the First Nations Summit Society.
You have up to 10 minutes to present. After that, we'll have questions and answers until the time is up, in just under one hour.
Whenever you're ready, you can begin.
