Thank you, Mr. Chair.
I thank all of you for being here with us today.
In light of everything that has been said in the media these days about the problems related to employment insurance and the Temporary Foreign Worker Program, seven minutes to put questions to you is not enough. I would like to ask you for precise, concise answers, real answers. I will be sharing my time with Ms. Charlton.
My question concerns housing. In fact, it is about the Homelessness Partnering Strategy, the HPS. We are very pleased that this program has been renewed for five years. However, its budgets were reduced and were never indexed, which is a problem.
The new Housing First program direction is another aspect which we find worrisome. The groups concerned share that concern. There are no details about it.
Will these stakeholders continue to be funded? Will everything that is related to prevention continue to be funded? We have no details on that and we would like to have more. When will these details be published? How will the groups concerned be affected? If it takes some time for these details to be published, what will happen to calls for tender in the meantime? Will agreements that exist at this time be renewed while waiting for the new guidelines to be made public?
Could you give me a brief answer, please?
