Thank you, Mr. Chair. I am here to present Supplementary Estimates (Operations Expenditures), No. 1, 2019-2020. This document provides for an increase of $2.5 million to the 2019-2020 operating budget.

The six items included in these supplementary estimates are:

  • $1.3 million to support the Taltson Hydro Expansion project. These projects again will be fully offset by revenue from Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada;
  • $800,000 for the Small Community Employment program;
  • $155,000 for programs supported by the Canadian Family Justice Fund Agreement, 2017-2022. These expenditures will be fully offset by revenue from the Government of Canada;
  • $148,000 for the Slave Geological Province Corridor project. These expenditures will be fully offset by revenue from the Canadian Northern Economic Development Agency;
  • $100,000 in support of the Northwest Territories Film Industry Support project. These expenditures will be fully offset by revenue from the Canadian Northern Economic Development Agency; and
  • $60,000 for implementation activities directly related to the legalization and regulation of cannabis.

That concludes my opening remarks, Mr. Chair. I would be happy to answer any questions Members may have. Thank you, Mr. Chair.

Thanks, Mr. Chair. I think this is where the Slave Geological Province Corridor funding is found. Can someone tell me whether there's any matching funding from GNWT for this work to go ahead? Thanks, Mr. Chair.
