Thanks, Mr. Chair.
There are really three components to this stand-alone bill within this omnibus budget legislation, two of which are providing for an option to print reports on an annual basis that the minister considers appropriate. Then for the third there is an obligation to submit a report on the impacts in terms of gender and diversity of all new budget measures described in the budget, if an assessment is not included or any related documents that the minister has made public.
Just so we understand, the analysis on tax expenditure and the analysis on programs is an option that is granted to the minister. It is not an obligation.

I'm just looking at the actual legal language. It says, all analysis “that the Minister considers appropriate.”
I understand what you're saying in terms of an obligation. Given that the appropriateness is determined by the minister, I think that leaves a fairly large loophole. I do understand the implementation of the new budget measures if an assessment is not included in the budget plan or any related documents that the minister has made public. There is an obligation provided that things are missing in the budget papers.
