Pursuant to a motion at committee and Standing Order 108(2), the committee will study the report of the Parliamentary Budget Officer on the tax gap.
We have with us the Parliamentary Budget Officer, Mr. Giroux; Mr. Mahabir, Director of Policy; and Mr. Bernier, Financial Adviser and Analyst.
Just for your information, we only have until about 10 minutes to 12:00. A member of Parliament, Mr. Warawa, has passed away. There's going to be a tribute in the House at 12:00, so we'll have to be there for that. My apologies for cutting it short.
I believe, Mr. Giroux, you have an opening statement.

Thank you very much, Mr. Giroux.
We will go to seven-minute rounds. If we stick to our time frame, we can do rounds of seven and five minutes, and one three-minute round after that.
Ms. Rudd.

Pierre, because Tom gave you their time, there were 14 minutes between the two of you. When you want to switch off and go to Mr. Julian, do so. You're at seven minutes now.

Okay. We'll go over to Mr. Sorbara.
I do want to point this out, Mr. Julian. I know you're not regularly at this committee, but it might be useful for you to go back to the minister's testimony to this committee. You stated that the government has not done anything on corporate tax avoidance. That is, quite bluntly, not true.

Over $1 million has been spent on tax avoidance, and tax recovery has increased.
We can't leave that on the record that way.

I call the meeting to order.
Pursuant to Standing Order 108(2), this is a study on the subject matter of the main estimates 2019-20: votes 1, 5, 10, 15 and 20 under Department of Finance; votes 1 and 5 under Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre of Canada; and vote 1 under Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions.
Witnesses at the table include Darlene Bess, chief financial officer, and Andrew Marsland, senior assistant deputy minister, tax policy branch. Both are with the Department of Finance Canada.
There are quite a number of other officials in the room, including those responsible for some of the agencies, such as FINTRAC and OSFI. If there are any questions on these, we can bring people up to the table and move ahead.
Please go ahead, Ms. Bess.
