Pursuant to Standing Order 108(3), we will resume our study of the issues related to the enumeration of rights-holders under section 23 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
We are pleased to welcome this morning two officials from Statistics Canada: Ms. Connie Graziadei, assistant chief statistician, and Ms. Johanne Denis, director general. Also with us is Mr. Larry Shute, from the Department of Industry.
Ms. Graziadei and Ms. Denis will have about 10 minutes for their presentation, and we will then go around the table to allow committee members to ask questions and make comments.
Please go ahead, Ms. Graziadei.
