Madam Speaker, I would like to recognize the exceptional work of women's shelters in our riding that offer support and comfort to the people who are victims of domestic violence. We have amazing teams of advocates here and across Canada who are always available and ready to help these victims. It take my hat off to L'Escale MadaVic and Maison Notre Dame for their amazing contribution in helping to fight domestic violence. The constant and immediate needs of organizations that provide gender-based services have been demonstrated, especially throughout this pandemic. Our government has invested $100 million across the country in support of these services, and for my riding of Madawaska—Restigouche alone, that represents over $252,000.
Again, I thank L'Escale MadaVic and Maison Notre Dame, their boards of directors, employees and volunteers for offering comfort and security to these families in need of help.
