Thank you, Madam Chair. I am not aware that this replacement will include prescriptions online, but I will ask the deputy minister if he can clarify when that might happen. Thank you.

Thank you, Madam Chair. This investment is intended to replace an in-hospital pharmacy management system, to bring the standard for the Northwest Territories for all of our major facilities up to the same standard and to improve management in the actual facility. This will not achieve any operability with online ordering, except within the context of the intranet of the facilities. Thank you.

Thank you. It's my understanding that it varies across the NWT, but if you want to know for your riding, then I will ask Mr. Heath if he can answer. Thank you.

Thank you, Madam Chair. The medical equipment evergreening program affects every community in the Northwest Territories. It is based on our overall inventory of all of our health assets. Year over year, depending on the life cycle of a particular piece of equipment, we do initiative and replacement programs, so it affects each and every health centre in every community across the Northwest Territories. Thank you.
