Excellent.
The innovative communities fund, through ACOA, is one that I see the benefits of daily. One thing I really appreciate about it is that it helps individuals or groups take part in an economy by strengthening the communities that might not otherwise be able to. I'm thinking of the CACL investment or the farmers' market in the community of Antigonish. The CACL project enables adults with intellectual disabilities to take part in the economy by being employed in a commercial kitchen or a small manufacturing facility. The farmers' market investment helps small producers not only take their product to market, but potentially get their products online to sell to a bigger market.
Can you talk about how this innovative communities fund is able to allow folks to take part in the economy on a scale they may not otherwise be able to?
