Government Operations committee  Mr. Chair, I think it would be best if those questions were directed to the National Research Council and ISED as the responsible ministry.

Government Operations committee  I'll just add this. Canada's vaccine portfolio is seven different vaccines, and they're very different. They are across three different technologies, so the prices vary depending on the type of vaccine and the number of vaccine doses you buy. I don't think it's appropriate for

Government Operations committee  Thank you, Madam Minister. We have received 10,000 FTI Professional Grade ventilators, but I am not sure whether the client has checked the quality of all those we have received.

Public Accounts committee  I could start, but I suspect I'll turn to Jean-Pierre in a moment. It's for the campaign. My understanding—and, Jean-Pierre, correct me if you need to, or elaborate—is a campaign could involve multiple contracts. It's the campaign that I believe is the threshold, but I'll turn t

Public Accounts committee  Again, 80% of the spending is what, I believe, Mr. Wallace said, but from a campaign perspective, if you're below that threshold, you're into a world where, again, the deputy head of the advertising department is accountable for the content. PSPC has a role to provide technical a

Public Accounts committee  Madam Chair, if I could jump in on that, one thing to keep in mind here is that this is a report from 2019, so the downside is that we had to dust off the report and re-familiarize ourselves with it. The plus side is that the department has had time to implement the recommendat

Public Accounts committee  I have a couple of comments, Madam Chair, and then I'll ask Mr. Blais to weigh in as well. Number one, the key thing is the process, where to go and what path to follow. It's a relatively small team of roughly six people with a low turnover, so you don't have a high-turnover job

Public Accounts committee  Madam Chair, could I add to that response, if that's okay with the member?

February 23rd, 2021Committee meeting

Bill Matthews

Public Accounts committee  As Mr. Wallace indicated, the deputy head of the advertising department has responsibility for content in terms of policy and legislation compliance. Where it does come in under that threshold, at their discretion they can request that it be reviewed as well, so that discretion e

Public Accounts committee  Madam Chair, maybe I could share that the government's annual report on advertising for 2019-20 is now public. That's the most recent publicly available information on government advertising spending. I'm not sure if that helps the member with his question, Madam Chair.

Public Accounts committee  Thank you, Madam Chair, and good morning, members. Thank you for the invitation to be with you today to discuss the Auditor General's spring report from 2019 on oversight of Government of Canada advertising.
