Government Operations committee  Actually, if I could finish with this line.... Since 2014-15, the government has written off between $164 million and $295 million per year in student loans. This is a regular appearance in these estimates. It is a normal accounting practice for us to expense it in this way.

Government Operations committee  I don't have the answer to what proportion of the $588 million is going directly to first nations providers of that, versus provincial versus agency.
