Thank you for your question, Ramesh.
I think it will help to attract and retain women. I think it's a big retention benefit. So when women are looking at these career opportunities, what we find is that women tend to be quite thoughtful, and before getting into a career, before taking training to get into the career, they're asking those questions. What's going to happen if and when I become pregnant? I believe it is an attraction and a retention benefit, absolutely.
I think what I would be interested in seeing in the strategy is something that also works for the employer, given that the largest number of companies in Canada that actually hire and train apprentices in trades are small to medium companies. These companies cannot afford to pay the bill for an individual to be on maternity leave, and it would become a huge disincentive to hire.
I'm hoping that the strategy will look at a number of different programs that are going on in other countries—and maybe our own country that maybe I'm not aware of—to find something that will really work for women and the companies that hire them to really create big incentives for the women and those companies.
