Okay. That's great.
For the veterans caregiver recognition benefit, it indicates here that just over 500 people will receive it in 2019-20. I'm a little confused, because they increased the amount, but at the same time, individuals who received it previously somehow no longer qualified for it.
It's like Canada summer jobs. You say that you're going to do more jobs but you cut back on the number of hours. There are people who were receiving it and no longer receive it. Why do they no longer receive it?

I am on your website. You show 43 openings for jobs. A mental health counsellor makes $76,767 a year. This was posted four months ago. Have you filled that position?

See, here's the issue; you have 43 jobs, ranging from mental health to privacy officer. I mean, that's 43 jobs. Some of these go on for months. Like I said, this one was posted four months ago. Have you had any leads to bring people to your community?

How many mental health counsellors do you need? I see two job openings for them listed on your website. How many do you have?

Mr. Prince, you spoke about medical practitioners and the certificates and the lack of knowledge. Do you know right now if there are training programs or information sessions that are put on by Service Canada or whomever, for medical practitioners to navigate the system or know what their patients might need to apply for?

When we change this system—and it will change gradually over time—the commitment that goes along with it is to increased resources, both human resources and financial resources, to make sure that we can change the orientation of the system. If it's going to run just like administrative segregation, that is not our intention. That's not what we want to accomplish.
We want to add the mental health professionals, add the upgraded and improved programming, so that the people who are there are actually getting the interventions, the programming and the treatment that will change the behaviour, reduce the risk and make them ultimately healthier citizens.

The intention is indeed to substantially increase the number of mental health professionals and to give them the professional independence to come to their own conclusions about the conditions or circumstances of a particular individual and not in any way feel compelled or coerced by the correctional setting they are in. They would have the independence to require the right kind of treatment for that particular person, according to their best independent, professional judgment.
Let me ask Commissioner Kelly to add.

Commissioner Kelly can explain the exact process here, but my understanding of how this would work is that if the health care professional thinks there's something fundamentally wrong—that this person is in a circumstance such that his conditions are making him worse, not better—then the health care professional can give that very emphatic advice to the administrators of the institution, and they have the ability to then act on the advice.
Anne, can you elaborate on this ?

Hopefully some of these questions will be answered fairly quickly, as I have a number to ask.
Can you tell us how many caregivers, under the old benefit, haven't yet applied for the new caregiver benefit?

How many, who were previously funded, no longer qualify for the new caregiver benefit?

I have to tell you that this is huge because we can't find our veterans, but when they have something they want to be found for, they're pretty accessible. It's good to hear this is happening because obviously we have veterans there who have suffered because they have to travel and they don't want to leave home and all those dynamics. I hope that's going to be significant for them.
You mentioned that 4,000 mental health professionals are available. We hear this a lot. How many of those are psychiatrists at any one time? Can you say that this month we have this many registered?

Do we know where they are? Then you can be able to say that this many are here, this many are there, that type of thing?
