Special COVID-19 Committee: the Impact on Women

Special Committee on the COVID-19 Pandemic – May 20, 2020:

MPs discuss how COVID-19 has disproportionately impacted women during the pandemic. During the period of ‘Questions to Ministers,’ Prime Minister Justin Trudeau addresses calls for more in-person sittings of Parliament, for more transparency over the financing of the government’s pandemic response, and for more paid sick-leave to Canadians.

The House of Commons agreed to convene as a special committee three days each week, with in-person meetings taking place on Wednesdays and meetings via videoconference on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
