Thank you very much, Chair.
Welcome, Minister, to our committee. It's good to see you here to give us an update on how your department is dealing with COVID-19, specifically as it relates to agriculture.
I wanted to touch on the agri-food pilot program as well. I think a lot of us welcome the fact that there is a pathway to permanent residency for many of these temporary foreign workers.
I'd just like to get your comment, Minister. How do you respond when an organization like the Migrant Workers Alliance for Change raises concerns that the program isn't designed very well for workers, that maybe it gives employers too much leeway—because these workers are very much essential—and that maybe the education and language testing requirements are a little too stringent? How would you respond to some of those concerns that have been raised?
