Natural Resources committee  Just to be clear, when we talk about indigenous peoples, we're talking about all three constitutionally recognized indigenous peoples. I think that type of agreement—the James Bay agreement—is certainly something that can be looked to. I don't think we would ever advocate that it

Natural Resources committee  Good morning, I am pleased to be able to be here with you this morning. I am going to switch to English, in the interest of time.

Human Resources committee  The only thing that I would add is, one of the things that our members have told us is very important and that we've also heard from educators is the issue of transitional assistance for aboriginal peoples because many of them do have to leave their home communities to go to high

Human Resources committee  This is a program that RBC started, as I mentioned, in the early 1990s, more than 20 years ago. They recruit aboriginal students from across the country to work in their branches, mostly in the customer-facing functions, because in my understanding of how it works, most of the te

Human Resources committee  Yes, and just to be clear, my expertise is not.... I believe that someone from the chamber has already appeared before you and addressed the broader issue of the skills challenge.

Human Resources committee  Again, we do have Credit Union Central as one of our members, so yes, from the chamber, I did consult with them.

Human Resources committee  As we got into in the paper, we saw that there was a lot of energy and focus, primarily through the regional economic development agencies. Again, as with education, it's not so much an issue of the money that's being put into it; our observation is that a lot of these agencies d

Human Resources committee  Perhaps we should have a separate conversation on interprovincial barriers to trade, because that's long been a focus of the Canadian Chamber, but it wasn't a focus of this paper. This focus was on the federal government, but I'd be happy to send you some material. We have lots.
