Thank you very much, Minister.
In my haste to get things moving today, I failed to recognize a few people. I would like to recognize that we are joined here today by Louise Levonian, deputy minister, from the Department of Employment and Social Development. Welcome back to this committee.
I also want to extend a welcome back to MP Brigitte Sansoucy. We've missed you.
Also, thank you for helping us out today, MP Picard.
We're going to get started with questions. I understand the minister is able to extend her stay for an additional 15 minutes, so we will have the minister until 5:15. That gives us about 15 minutes to deal with some committee business.
We will start off with MP Wong.
