Damage Under Front Bumper

Hi, I have a 2015 Mazda 3 GS (I live in Canada if that makes a difference)

Yesterday while parking, I accidentally drove my front bumper over a parking block. There are some scratches on my bumper, but that's not what I'm concerned about.

There was a scraping sound both when I pulled in and reversed off of the block.

I noticed when looking under my bumper a piece of ripped plastic on both the left and right side. I've attached some photos, but can anyone tell me what this plastic is? It's not majorly ripped, but it is noticeable. The affected area is right in front of the tire on each side. I've attached some photos.

Also, is this piece of plastic important or am I okay to drive with it as is until I can get it fized? How much will it cost to repair?

If anyone could help me out, I would be so appreciative.

It's just the undercover, it's not a big deal. If you want to fix it, then a new one is only about $50.
