Thank you.
Mr. Chair, I would still like General Fortin to submit an answer to the question I previously asked about the numbers.
Do I have time for another question?

Thank you, Madam Chair.
Thank you for joining us today, Minister, and always being available, our third minister being available to us, showing that our committee is very important.
As someone who was a member of the pay equity committee that passed a recommendation in 2018, I'm proud of our committee's record on the transparency measures, and the pay equity legislation.
I think it is worth mentioning that our federal government has been the most proactive in history on the issue of pay equity after robust consultation with workers, stakeholders and employers.
Minister, you said the pay equity is our legacy, it's historic legislation.
My first question is about the legislation's impact on our economy.
Minister, how will the proactive pay equity regulations support the growth of the Canadian economy, and the economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic?

Thank you, Minister.
Minister, some provinces have their own pay equity system. In Manitoba and the Maritimes, they cover the public sector. In Ontario and Quebec, they cover the public and private sectors.
Would you be able to comment on the lessons learned from the rollout in these provinces that explain why we would not want to rush this legislation?

Thank you.
I know that our government is committed to ensuring effective implementation and enforcement of proactive pay equity for federally regulated workplaces.
Minister, what steps have already been taken to ensure pay equity is done the right way?

Thank you, Minister.
As you have said—and all members of our committee would agree—Canadian women are among the world's highest educated, and education could be one of the greatest tools to increase labour participation and pay equity.
What further investment into education and training for our young women and girls do you believe is necessary to unlock this economic potential, as Canada is set to begin its post-COVID economic recovery process?

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Thank you to all the doctors for your insight.
Dr. Sharma, very briefly, can you take us through the process that goes into giving a new vaccine full authorization in Canada so it is safe for all Canadians? Please give us a very short answer.

Thank you.
Dr. Sharma, the federal government provided almost 23 million rapid tests to support provincial and territorial partners. There are millions currently collecting dust at provincial facilities. What do you think should be improved to make sure these procured tests are used by our provinces and territories?

Thank you.
A few days ago, Dr. Tam said we can be very optimistic about the performance of the vaccines so far based on the data collected. There's growing evidence that one dose provides a fairly high level of protection. Can you tell us about how the first phase of our vaccination provides effectiveness?
Very briefly, please.

Mr. Chair, do I have more time?

Dr. Bernstein, there are few groups that were not part of vaccine trials, such as teens or pregnant women. Can you provide insight on any research that has been done to make sure these vulnerable groups are protected?

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Thank you to all the witnesses for being here today.
My first question is for the Public Health Agency.
The National Advisory Committee on Immunization has released updated new guidance for Canadians on COVID-19 vaccine efforts. Can you give a better sense of the work that goes into developing and releasing this guidance?

Thank you, Ms. Elmslie.
I noticed that racialized seniors have now been included on the guidance list as a priority for vaccination. Many seniors expressed concerns about being at risk. Would you be able to comment on what kind of data is being used to take this decision?

Thank you.
Dr. Szumski or Dr. Poliquin, on February 9, Health Canada approved extracting six doses from Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine vials versus the previously approved five. Can you give us an understanding of how six doses instead of five will affect the spread at which we will get vaccine? Do you think it will impact the speed at which we will get the vaccines?
