Human Resources Minister Diane Finley and Labour Minister Lisa Raitt brief the committee on Bill C-44, which would allow for work leave when a child is critically ill, dies, or disappears as the “probable result of a crime.” Employment Insurance benefits would also be extended to those caring for a critically ill child.

UPDATE: Bill C-44 received royal assent on December 14.
