Thank you, Mr. Chair, and thank you to all of our panellists today.
From the perspective of an MP who lives in a northern rural region, I really appreciate the work that economic diversification projects do in Canada and how you work with communities and stakeholders. It has definitely been one of the more successful programs we've seen offered in rural Canada in the time I've been involved, so thank you for that.
My questions are going to be focused more on the Atlantic region, so thank you, Mr. Maillet, for joining us today.
We did talk about softwood lumber a bit and the aid package the Government of Canada put in place, the $867 million. I want to indicate that it's not administered through the development corporations or the diversification agencies, but it has been a critical piece in addressing the forestry needs and gaps that are there. In budget 2019, the government allocated $250 million over the next three years to be focused on projects within the forestry sector. I'm not sure if your agencies are a part of delivering any of that particular funding. If so, I'd like to hear about it.
My question is regarding the Atlantic region. Is there targeted funding under ACOA that is designed for the forestry sector? Is there a specific targeted pot of money you can access to respond to the needs of what you're seeing in Nova Scotia right now with Northern Pulp? That would be my first question.
Secondly, under the agency itself, are there any programs that are specifically designed for targeted industries? If not, how do you weigh out how investments are made in each of the sectors?

We heard from your colleagues in the other regions today that the ask on funding is often far greater than allowed by the budgets. Is that the same in the Atlantic region?
Also—and maybe all of you could answer this question—should the Government of Canada be looking at targeted funding in certain sectors, or do you see your role, as a diversification agency, as having more flexibility in responding to crises in resource sector industries when they occur? We're talking about forestry today. We've seen it as well in the fishery. We've seen it in other aspects of agriculture, and we've seen it in tourism.
Should we be looking at taking a different direction in how we fund your agencies for you to better respond to emergencies and crises in resource sector industries?

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Welcome to our witnesses.
Again, condolences to the family members as we discuss this very important topic.
Today we saw a CBC report commenting on two reports. One was from the Ethiopian investigation team, which clearly points a finger at Boeing. The other was from the U.S. House of Representatives, which I find somewhat disturbing, when we think about the comments they make in the report about the tremendous financial pressure to get things done, the culture of concealment, hiding flaws with the MCAS system from 737 Max pilots and failure to identify key safety problems. They're questioning the certification process of the FAA, obviously. I found that somewhat concerning.
Given the comments about the FAA and the failure, the shortcomings in what they did and how they collaborated with Boeing on some of these certification processes, why should we continue to trust the certification process? I guess the question is this. How would you expect other countries to react if we withdrew from the international system and stopped recognizing their certification process? What might some of the implications be for Canadian companies if other countries no longer recognized Canadian certification?
I'll ask Ms. Diamant to comment on that, and maybe Mr. Curtis.

Thank you.
Mr. Deer, how does Transport Canada assist you with certification? How lengthy or rigorous is the process?

Do you feel that the Canadian certification process in recent years has made advancements that have led to improved safety?

What, if anything, sets apart the Canadian certification process from other global certifying entities?

Good morning, everyone.
Pursuant to Standing Order 108(2) and our study on the state of the Pacific salmon, today we have departmental officials here to talk about that issue. I believe Big Bar is part of it.
We have with us, Jen O'Donoughue, assistant deputy minister and chief financial officer; Ms. Rebecca Reid, regional director general, Pacific region; and Andrew Thomson, regional director, fisheries management.
I know that some of you have been here before committee many times. Welcome.
Ms. Reid, I believe you're giving the opening remarks, for 10 minutes or less, please.

Thank you, Ms. Reid.
Now we'll go to questioning. Hopefully, anything you didn't get a chance to highlight will come out in the questioning.
First, for six minutes, we'll go to the Conservative Party and Mr. Arnold.
