Mr. Speaker, right now before the House we have Bill C-66 which once passed will enable CMHC to promote Canadian housing exports across the world. This will mean job creation for Canadians and growth for the housing industry in Canada.
In 1998, for example, we had a trade mission to Chile that resulted in $14 million worth of sales. CMHC is organizing other missions right now in Germany, China, Japan, Korea and more. The government believes in and supports the housing industry in Canada.
