The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today released ministerial mandate letters to guide Cabinet.
“On Election Day, Canadians chose to continue moving forward. People have been clear that they want progress on the issues that matter most, from fighting climate change and strengthening the middle class, to walking the road of reconciliation, keeping people safe and healthy, and positioning Canada for success in an uncertain world.
Canadians expect the Government to be open and accountable in all its work. In 2015, the Prime Minister publicly released the ministerial mandate letters for the first time, to ensure Canadians can follow the Government’s priorities and track its progress. The mandate letters released today outline a commitment to move forward in an open, positive, and collaborative way. The Government will work in partnership with Indigenous peoples, provinces, territories, municipalities, and Parliamentarians on behalf of all Canadians.”
“It is more important than ever to unite around our shared purpose, as we build a stronger, more inclusive, and more resilient country. That is exactly what our team will do, finding common ground and delivering real, positive results for all Canadians. These mandate letters outline our commitment to keep government open, transparent, and accountable, and to continue moving forward for Canadians from coast to coast to coast.”
The Rt. Hon. Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada
