Thank you, Mr. Chairman.
First, let's just remind ourselves of the context. As members of the opposition party, one of our important roles is to ask whether programs are doing what they are supposed to be doing, and what can be done to improve them. It is in light of this context that I will ask my questions.
My first question is for the representatives of the Canadian Business Information Network, CABiNET.
First, thank you for being here. I am very pleased to hear from you. What you have said is very interesting.
You explained how the office could do more to encourage SMEs. Ms. Shereen Benzvy Miller testified before the committee, I believe it was last week. I asked her a question with regard to the definition of a small and medium size enterprise. She replied that an SME was defined as being a business with 500 employees or fewer, regardless of business revenues.
Do you think that the government should change the definition in order to reach more SMEs?
