Jenny Kwan NDP Vancouver East, BC

Thank you, Mr. Chair.

I'd like to put a motion on notice, if I may. The motion would read as follows:

That, pursuant to Standing Order 108(2), the Committee undertake a study of the increasing incidence of forced internal displacement globally and how Canada can best respond to the humanitarian crisis involving forced internal displacement; that this study should be comprised of no fewer than three meetings; that the Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship be in attendance for at least one meeting; and that departmental officials from Global Affairs Canada and Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada be in attendance for at least one meeting; and that the study be concluded; and that the Committee report its finding to the House; and that pursuant to Standing Order 109, the government table a comprehensive response thereto.

9:30 p.m.


The Chair Liberal Rob Oliphant

Thank you. That has been received.

Is there any other business that is to come to the committee?

I will see you in about 10 hours. The meeting is adjourned.
