I would appreciate that because, as you know, instead of coming forward with a direct universal payment, the government has come out with all sorts of different programs, and people will qualify under different sets of circumstances. If they qualify, it would be astounding if the government would later on, in a different program, penalize people because of those benefits. I hope that exemption of not penalizing people engaged in the immigration process would apply for all government emergency benefits at this time.
In terms of open work permits, the minister mentioned that work is under way with respect to that. Can the officials give us an update? For people with employer-specific work permits, if they've lost their jobs at this time, it would almost be impossible for them to secure employment. Therefore, making open work permits available to them would be quite essential.
Can you give us an update on where you are in terms of realizing this?
