Without further ado, I now call the meeting to order.
Pursuant to Standing Order 108(3)(f), we are continuing our study on the modernization of the Official Languages Act.
With honour and enthusiasm, we welcome today representatives of French for the Future and Canadian Parents for French.
I'd like to begin by apologizing, on behalf of the committee, for the vote that will soon be called. We will nevertheless have time to hear from both organizations, who will each have seven minutes for their presentation. Afterwards, we should be able to accommodate two or three rounds of questions.
At around 10 after 12, the bells will ring for a vote, and we will need unanimous consent from committee members to extend the meeting a bit longer or come back after the vote. At that point, we can talk about how we wish to proceed.
I'd like to thank all four witnesses, who travelled to be here today. It's very much appreciated. We'll have the representatives from French for the Future start us off.
Over to you, Mr. Boudreau.
