The ministry will also be coordinating the availability of the reports in alternate formats, if requested.

Once the feedback period concludes, ministry staff will compile all the feedback and provide us the PSE-SDC with a summary as well for our review. The PSE-SDC will be considering all public feedback before we finalize our recommendations, in preparation for submitting our final report to the Minister for consideration.

I encourage you to share this news across your networks and encourage your feedback.
