Notices of Meeting include information about the subject matter to be examined by the committee and date, time and place of the meeting, as well as a list of any witnesses scheduled to appear. The Evidence is the edited and revised transcript of what is said before a committee. The Minutes of Proceedings are the official record of the business conducted by the committee at a sitting.
I must inform members that the clerk of the committee can only receive motions for the election of the chair. The clerk cannot receive other types of motions, cannot entertain points of order, and cannot participate in debate.
We can now proceed to the election of the chair. Pursuant to Standing Order 106(2), the chair must be a member of the government party.
Thank you, everyone. It's a great honour to be here. This is one of the most important committees. Our initiatives for reconciliation started last year and continue this year. Indigenous people are the youngest population overall in Canada. They provide a huge economic opportunity and will bring great value to Canada's economy.
I want to thank you for your support. I look forward to working with you.
I'd like to call for a motion for adjournment at this time. Then we can move on to more of the business at the next meeting.
