Thank you, Mr. Chair, and thank you to my colleague across the aisle for bringing this up.
We know that the Canada summer jobs program is very important, and I firmly support studying the dynamics of the program for 2020 as it relates to the previous years. There's no question it will be a worthy study. As we know, COVID-19 has really shaken up the program, and a number of organizations' plans regarding their applications have changed.
However, I'm concerned about the timing and the date of the program, so I would like to propose the following amendment to the motion, and I hope it will be seen by the honourable member as a friendly amendment. I propose that the lines “that this study be completed by September 21, 2020” be replaced with “that this study be completed no later than December 15, 2020”.
That will at least allow us to get through most of the program and be able to have a report before the end of the year.
