Thank you very much, Mr. Chair, and thank you all for coming in to educate us on the implications of the trade agreements that Canada has and how they affect its domestic supply arrangements with small and medium-sized enterprises and aboriginal groups.
I have many questions, and so I imagine we'll have a long and interesting conversation here today.
In terms of the transparency piece, Canada presumably reports not only on the thresholds but also on what percentage of federal government contracts are earned by foreign companies. Then, do foreign countries provide the same in terms of transparency on how often Canada is able to access foreign procurements so that we can compare and see whether or not we've been successful?
Ms. Renart, is that the case? Is this information publicly available? How are we doing with foreign purchases in our government procurement opportunities versus Canadian supply to foreign purchases?
