I call the meeting to order. Pursuant to Standing Order 108(2), we'll begin our study of corporate subsidies with officials from the Department of Industry, or ISED, as well as individuals from the Canadian Northern Economic Development Agency and the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency.
Mr. Davies, I believe you have opening remarks, and then I gather we'll go to questions from members, unless somebody else wants to add remarks with you.
Go ahead, Mr. Davies.

Thank you very much, Mr. Davies.
Just for the information of committee members as well, we have the witnesses on your sheet. As well, there are two individuals from the Department of Finance here should there be questions that need to be answered from their perspective as well. The assistant deputy minister, economic development and corporate finance branch is here, as well as the director general, business income tax division. If need be, we'll call you folks to the table.
With that, we will turn to the first round of questions. It will be a six-minute round.
Mr. Poilievre.

The Chair: Go ahead, Mr. Davies. Finish your first answer, if you like.

Thank you very much.
Mr. Julian, you have six minutes.
If anybody else has another point they think should be raised, just tip your hand and I'll catch you.
Go ahead, Mr. Julian.

Are you asking about the criteria for loans from Export Development Canada?
I doubt if that's in your bailiwick, but can you answer that, Mr. Davies?

Is there anybody from finance who can answer that question? We can send a note to EDC to get it answered if necessary.
All right, there is no one.

I think they're in the same position as before. As it relates to EDC, we may have to invite them if this is the line of questioning, because I don't think any of the officials here. I see finance shaking their heads as well. We may have to handle that question in another way if we can, Mr. Julian.
Mainly, we're talking about corporate subsidies here, not loans through Export Development Canada.

We don't have anybody here from government. We can invite somebody from EDC to come to answer this question. There are a number of witnesses who have said they can't come.
I operate in the potato industry, and I know that if it weren't for EDC, we wouldn't be in some markets with potatoes, which return good investment back to Canada. If you wish, we can try to invite EDC.
Can we stick to questions that these folks can answer?

Did you not say though, in your remarks, that a number of jobs were created and maintained?
Did you not have 60,000? What was the number?

It was 67,000 created and maintained.
Mr. Cooper
