I'd like to call our meeting to order. This is meeting 59 of the Standing Committee on Environment and Sustainable Development. Pursuant to Standing Order 108(2), we're pursuing a study of how the private sector in Canada is showing leadership by partnering with not-for-profit organizations to undertake local environmental initiatives.
We're pleased to have with us today, in person, Mike Morrice, executive director and founder of Sustainability CoLab. To those of us from the Kitchener-Waterloo area, we've known Michael as Sustainable Waterloo. Welcome to Michael.
From the KW area as well, Tracey Ryan, manager, environmental education and restoration, Grand River Conservation Authority, is appearing by video. Welcome to Tracey.
We will begin with 10-minute opening statements by each of our witnesses. These will be followed by seven-minute rounds of questions.
We'll start with Mr. Morrice.
