Thank you very much, Mr. Chair.
I just want to say what an excellent conversation we're having here this afternoon and to thank my colleagues for the excellent questions and the panellists for the excellent responses.
My question is directed to Ms. McGee and Madame Corriveau. I'm not sure if Ms. McGee is available.
Vancouver recently did its annual homeless count and for the first time they used race-based data, which revealed and confirmed that people who identified as black and as indigenous were disproportionately represented among the homeless population. Statistics Canada recently released its labour force survey, again using disaggregated race-based data for the first time, and it revealed that COVID-19 is hitting hard Canadians who identify, for example, as south Asian, Arabic, black and indigenous.
How important is the gathering of disaggregated race-based data when it comes to housing and homelessness, and why is that important?
