I want to start by thanking Mr. Aylward and his members.
With respect to the administration of the Canada summer jobs program, in my riding of Leeds—Grenville—Thousand Islands and Rideau Lakes, I can tell you that the program was oversubscribed. It was launched late due to a government announcement, and with all the challenges of COVID-19, there were a lot of moving pieces. A record number of employers were approved, and we were absolutely flooded with applicants who were interested in applying. Unfortunately, the funds for the program were exhausted, and all of the approved employers did not receive placements, much to the disappointment of folks in my community, both on the prospective employee side and on the employer side.
There are great challenges that exist with respect to filling employment positions, so I appreciate your testimony, Mr. Aylward.
I'm going to turn to Mr. Lapointe for my first question.
There are public reports, including an interview with the managing director of Charity Intelligence, that detail the sudden resignation or replacement of the board at the WE organization. In your experience in this sector, is that unusual?
