I live in the riding next to yours, and yes, we do have many Toronto members. Technology is changing rapidly in the industry, in theatre and motion picture and television, and the ability to stay on top of that is crucial. We're growing so exponentially. The industry is growing by leaps and bounds in many sectors across the country. We are dedicating tremendous resources to training and retraining to maintain people in the industry.
The concern is that if our industry continues to stay shut down, many of our members have skills that are transferable to other industries. We have carpenters. We have painters. They can leave and go and work in the construction industry. The concern is that if this downturn is prolonged and there isn't support, we may lose crucial people in the industry as we come out of it and as we look to grow.
We now are developing training programs to attract diverse communities into the industry as well. With the COVID shutdown, we've had to put those programs on hold. The xoTO program run by the Toronto school board and the City of Toronto is a great example of that. Unfortunately, we've had to put a hold on that.
