Finance committee  If we could receive support in the coming months, at least for fixed costs, we could certainly survive until next year. The next revenue stream is expected to come in January. As Mr. Shepard was saying, perhaps we could also receive financial support for infrastructure. Since we

Finance committee  According to the figures that I have on hand, the occupancy capacity will vary from 30% to 40% of the clients that we usually see. That's very little, considering that parents will certainly need this service in the summer. At this time, 100% of summer camps in Quebec are closed,

Finance committee  We're still hoping for good news and confirmation. At this time, we're in contact with senior officials at the Canada Revenue Agency. The government seems to have understood the issues and the specific realities of the camp sector. The government has offered its full support and

Finance committee  The $40,000 loan is available to my members right now. However, it's not enough. The money is allocated in advance to our clients. We must reimburse our clients, and they won't be there this summer because our camps have been cancelled. We must refund all the deposits. Our borro

Finance committee  The Canada summer jobs decision seems to have been more of a local decision made by the member of Parliament, I think, as is usually the case. Since the announcement was made much later than the date established for submitting Canada summer jobs applications, we hadn't received a
