Trudeau will hold Cabinet retreat in Ottawa next week

PRIME Minister Justin Trudeau announced on Thursday that he will hold a Cabinet retreat in Ottawa on September 14 and 15.

In a statement, he said: “As the world continues to face the ongoing threat and impacts of the global pandemic, the Cabinet retreat will focus on maintaining vigilance across the country to protect Canadians from COVID-19, and ensure they are supported throughout this global health and economic emergency.

“Cabinet will also discuss the path to recovery and how we can build a more resilient Canada that is healthier and safer, cleaner and more competitive, and fairer and more inclusive for everyone. The Government of Canada will continue to work closely with provinces, territories, municipalities, Indigenous peoples, global partners, stakeholders, and businesses on these important issues.

“The upcoming retreat will also be an opportunity to look forward as the government prepares to present a Speech from the Throne on September 23. The Speech will outline a detailed vision for the future and a plan to keep Canadians safe while we rebuild a stronger Canada that works for everyone.”
