I'll call the meeting officially to order. Welcome to meeting number 43 of the House of Commons Standing Committee on Finance.
This will be the first panel of two today. Today's meeting is taking place by video conference, and the proceedings will be made available via the House of Commons website.
We are meeting on government spending, WE Charity and the Canada student service grant.
For the first panel, which will go for two hours, I welcome the witnesses on that panel. If you could, try to keep your remarks to about five minutes. That would be helpful and will give members more time for questions.
We will start with the Canadian Women's Foundation, Paulette Senior, president and CEO.
Ms. Senior, you're on. Welcome.
