I'd like to address my first question to Women's Shelters Canada. It's about Imagine Canada. I'm sure you have heard of their report coming out. They have stated that the central government is “inconsistent in how they administer” grants and contribution funding and that “multi-year funding is” often “not available”, while “legitimate financial and administrative costs are excluded and program evaluation is not covered”, even though it may be required in an agreement. They state, “The net effect is that charities, nonprofits, and their donors are essentially subsidizing the federal government.”
You specifically addressed and I appreciated the continual voicing of the fact that core funding is desperately needed. Can you explain further how in the future that movement away from short-term, project-based funding and into core stable funding is going to help for a second wave or any sort of future crisis that we may encounter?
