Thank you, Mr. Chair.
In the interests of time I'm going to ask two questions. One of them naturally has to do with the innovation agenda and Innovation Canada. The other one has to do with the skills fund, two major pillars of the 2017 budget.
On the preamble side, in my riding, Richmond Hill, what I have started in collaboration with other levels of government and the board of trade is an innovation task force. The objective of the innovation task force in my community is to identify companies and young entrepreneurs specifically in the area of artificial intelligence and robotics to benefit from the innovation agenda and the Innovation Canada platform to be able to get funding so they can get into early-stage as well as late-stage development.
Can you shed some light on how, after the identification of these opportunities, they can get access to the funds under the Innovation Canada program?
