Mr. Speaker, the NDP would like to present a supplementary report to the report just tabled by my colleague, and for three reasons.
We do not necessarily disagree with what is in that report; however, we believe that there were some important points from the study that were not included in the report.
Witnesses spoke to the committee specifically about the need for accessible and affordable child care for families all across Canada, and that needs to mentioned. The importance of recognizing foreign credentials for newcomers was also highlighted. Lastly, of course, the eligibility criteria for integration services need to be reviewed, given that we were told that many women and newcomers cannot access those services.
These things are very important to the NDP, which is why we wanted to emphasize them in a supplementary report.
