Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Today, I'm presenting the annual report stemming from the obligations set out in the House of Commons policy on preventing and addressing harassment. This policy applies to members as employers and to their employees.
During the period covered by the report, the Office of the Chief Human Resources Officer dealt with five new cases. One case was formally investigated, one case was resolved through the mechanisms established in the policy, and three cases are still ongoing.
The report also outlines the training and awareness activities related to the policy framework. There is online training available to members and their staff. Thus far, 782 employees and members have participated in the training. There is also mandatory in-class training that is made available to all new members.
Following the last election, five sessions were offered to members, and in the current Parliament, 250 members have completed the training. In terms of the remaining members, we had actually scheduled a couple of sessions for March, but those were obviously cancelled due to COVID. We are currently working to provide those sessions virtually. We are also looking at the same option for the members' staff so that they can participate in that training virtually as well.
I am happy to take any questions at this time.

Good question, Ms. DeBellefeuille. When I speak in French, I pronounce my last name the French way, and when I speak in English, I pronounce it the English way.

Based on the data for the past three years, the number of complaints addressed has decreased. It was also an election year, and a decrease was expected.
That said, the report shows a significant decrease in requests regarding conflict or harassment. This decrease is attributable to the respectful workplace program. I'd like to think that, with the establishment of human resources services for members, we'll deal with many more cases of conflict before a complaint is made. Many of the cases involve labour relations. We get involved at the start of these cases. I think that this helps to resolve them and to avoid more formal complaints.

Yes. It's 250 members.
The remaining members were supposed to complete their training in March. We're going to try to meet with them virtually.

Nearly 100%. I think only two are left.

Thank you for the question.
I believe that, further to a 2017 decision, the training was made mandatory for members' staff as well. That's why we are exploring virtual options to meet with all new staff. We also have a new onboarding program for members' staff. It will incorporate the training, so new staff will have completed it before they start.
