Mr. Chair, I thank the minister for his answer.
I want to come back to the first question on the possibility of proceeding to make any changes to the wage subsidy through regulations.
I have an example of a case that applies to what was said earlier. Many professionals, in the health sector for example, have questions, and they believe they could fall through the cracks of the three programs. As far as the wage subsidy is concerned, these professionals are often self-employed workers who pay themselves dividends. It seems that they might not benefit from the wage subsidy.
The same goes for the emergency loans. These businesses pay salaries only to employees who do office administration work. An office that employs just one person will not have a $50,000 payroll. To get the Canada emergency response benefit, the business must stop all activity and no longer treat urgent cases. I am thinking of chiropractors, for example.
Would it be possible to change the criteria for these people through a regulatory change?
