Thank you very much, Mr. Chair.
Minister Hajdu, thank you very much for being here with us today.
We must recognize that the beginning of this study will allow us to determine where improvements could be made, and, according to what I understand about your objectives, what other opportunities could be found to improve the Youth Employment Strategy.
I had the pleasure of being the president of the Fédération de la jeunesse canadienne-française 20 years ago. It was at that time that the government of the day announced the Youth Employment Strategy. As we know, changes have been made to it since then. The current Liberal government has continued to invest in the strategy, and I think it is important to recognize that. That said, the situation has changed over the last 20 years, and technology has had an important impact on the labour market.
Why do today's young people need new skills and more adequate experience in the face of the transformations brought about by technology? Will the proposed measures or programs allow us to keep pace with the rapid evolution of this economy?
