I call the meeting to order.
Welcome to meeting number 44 of the House of Commons Standing Committee on Finance. Pursuant to Standing Order 108(2) and the committee's motion adopted on Tuesday, April 27, the committee is meeting to study the subject matter of Bill C-30, an act to implement certain provisions of the budget tabled in Parliament on April 19, 2021 and other measures.
Today's meeting is taking place in a hybrid format, pursuant to the House order of January 25. Therefore, members are attending in person in the room and remotely using the Zoom application. The proceedings will be made available via the House of Commons website. The webcast shows only the person speaking rather than the entirety of the committee. We ask that screenshots of the total committee or its witnesses not be taken.
With that, I will go the agenda. We're looking at 10 different departments in this panel. We have 23 witnesses all on video, although Mr. Xavier, I believe, is available via voice. We'll deal with part 4, divisions 10, 14, 17, 18, 19, 26, 27, 28, 31, 33 and 37.
Rather than me getting into the introduction of all the witnesses, I'd ask that when the spokesperson for each division comes forward, they introduce themselves, their department, their position and any other colleagues they may have with them.
I want to thank all the witnesses for coming.
We will start with division 10, which is the First Nations Fiscal Management Act.
Ms. Dwivedi, you may go ahead. Then we will go to questions, as we've done in the previous panels.
