Thank you very much, Mr. Chair.
I'd like to bring Ms. MacKenzie and Ms. Forbes into the discussion here.
Ms. MacKenzie, in your opening remarks, there were a couple of things that you said that I'd like to probe a little further. First, you mentioned about a dog not being a program dog and the importance of the differentiation between owner training and self-training.
The other thing you said, and your colleague Ms. Forbes also focused on this as well, was about standards for training versus standards for outcomes. I'd like to hear you elaborate a bit more on those two points, if you would, please.
Then I'm going to go to you, Ms. Forbes.

Lib. (PE)
Thank you.
I'm sorry. Go ahead. Finish your thought. I thought you were done.
View Sean Casey Profile
Lib. (PE)
Yes, I thought so too. Thank you for that.
Ms. Forbes, one of the things that Ms. MacKenzie just said that I hope you'll be able to help me with is that she is not ADI certified because she's not a charity. Based on all of the committees on which you sit, I know you know this space very well. Why is it that the ADI certification only works for charities?

I think that's what you talked about in terms of being accredited by Imagine Canada.
Could I get you to react to something else, as well?
We heard something from Mr. Cousineau that I found quite troubling, that the process towards developing a national standard was sabotaged by an organization that was pursuing their own self-interests. You indicated that you're on the CGSB technical committee. What would be your reaction to that sort of news? Can you expand upon it at all?

I call this meeting to order and welcome you to meeting number 38 of the House of Commons Standing Committee on Human Resources, Skills and Social Development and the Status of Persons with Disabilities.
Today's meeting is taking place in a hybrid format, pursuant to the House order of January 25, 2021. The proceedings will be made available via the House of Commons website, which will always show the person speaking rather than the entirety of the committee.
Pursuant to Standing Order 108(2) and the motion adopted by the committee on Tuesday, February 2, 2021, the committee will continue its study on the impact of COVID-19 on seniors.
I'd like to welcome Dr. Suzanne Dupuis-Blanchard from the National Seniors Council.
Dr. Blanchard, interpretation is available at this video conference. You have the choice at the bottom of your screen of floor, English or French. When speaking, please speak slowly and clearly, and when you're not speaking, your mike should be on mute.
You'll probably see me from time to time holding up one finger. That's not because I have something to say; it's to signal that there's one minute left in the turn of the person who's asking you a question.
Thank you so much for being with us, Dr. Dupuis-Blanchard.
Without further ado, you have the floor for your opening remarks for a five full minutes, if you need them.

You've developed a standard to which you require partners to ascribe, and we're all here trying to solve this puzzle of why there is no national standard. You've developed one, and there's a bunch of providers that are keen to meet it.

I call this meeting to order.
Welcome to meeting number 36 of the Standing Committee on Human Resources, Skills and Social Development and the Status of Persons with Disabilities.
Today's meeting is taking place in a hybrid format, pursuant to the House order of January 25, 2021. Proceedings will be made available via the House of Commons website. The webcast will always show the person speaking rather than the entirety of the committee.
The committee will now proceed to the consideration of matters related to committee business. I will remind members that we are in public and not in camera. I will also remind members that we have a witness coming at 5 p.m.—so in about 22 minutes—Romy Bowers. We were able to secure 90 minutes for her. I would ask that folks be mindful that we will have her here and that we have a limited amount of time for committee business.
The other thing that some, but not all, of you are aware of is that I will be ceding the chair to Ms. Dancho at or before 5 p.m. as I have some happy personal business to attend to. I want to thank Ms. Dancho for agreeing to take the chair on my departure.
In terms of committee business, it is my hope that we will be able to deal with two things that were raised previously and one new item, at least by way of reference. As you may be aware, yesterday the House referred Bill C-265 to the committee. As a private member's bill referred to the committee, it must be reported back to the House 60 sitting days following the date it was referred. We will receive soon—although we haven't yet—a memorandum from our support people at the House of Commons. We will receive a memorandum—as will independents such as Mr. Manly, who is with us here today—with information that will be of assistance to us in consideration of the bill. That's one thing that we could deal with today.
The other things that were previously before us that we'd like to finalize, if possible, in the next 22 minutes are the budget for the seniors study and the question of honorariums and gifts—we have some news on that. There's also the matter of the Centennial Flame Research Award. We have some information to get back to you on that.
Colleagues, I'm going to start with a suggestion in connection with Bill C-265, and then we can open the floor. Given that any discussion on how we're going to deal with Bill C-265 is likely to take more than the 19 minutes we now have, it would be my recommendation that we set aside some time for committee business at a future meeting to chart our course with respect to Bill C-265 in terms of how many meetings we should set aside, the timing of those meetings, the submission of witness lists, the amount of time allocated for clause-by-clause, etc. I think that will be a detailed discussion that we're not going to be able to deal with in a cursory fashion.
Those are my introductory remarks.
I see Madame Chabot.
You have the floor, Ms. Chabot.
View Sean Casey Profile
Lib. (PE)
Thank you, Ms. Chabot.
We don't have many meetings before June 24. Also, we will receive the draft report on EI reform on June 7. However, I understand your suggestions and I fully accept them.
Are there any other comments on this issue?
Ms. Dancho, please.
View Sean Casey Profile
Lib. (PE)
Seeing no other hands raised, can we move to one of the other outstanding items? We will bring this back before the committee the next time we have committee business.
We have witnesses invited for the next two meetings, although I see a “to be determined” on the Tuesday panel. If that slot hasn't been filled, we may be able to have three sets of witnesses for one panel and leave some time at the end. That would be one solution. If not, we'll see what we can do on Thursday, June 3.
For the next item, you have a budget before you for approval with respect to the study we are currently undertaking, which is the impact of COVID-19 on seniors. It's a budget of $4,300. When we last discussed it, a couple of questions were posed.
One was around the possibility of an honorarium and tobacco for indigenous elders who will be included among the witnesses that come before us. With respect to that, the clerk has done a bit of research and has indicated that there is a policy on the issuance of gifts from the official gift bank, which limits the issuance of gifts to either travelling committees or foreign delegations coming before the committee. This would be contrary to that policy. I would also point out as a matter of interest that this isn't something that is done at the indigenous affairs committee.
I'm happy to entertain further discussion on this. If there is none, I would ask for a motion that the budget be adopted as presented.
