Trudeau will use the retreat to discuss policies that best serve Canadians
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced he will hold a Cabinet retreat in Ottawa on the 14th and 15th of September. Since the proroguing of parliament on August 18, 2020, the government will use the time to focus on improving the many institutes of the Canadian Government.
In a recent interview, Prime Minister Trudeau will be putting a lot of focus on updating the EI system to reflect the changing times and economic needs.
“Together, we continue to face significant challenges, but also opportunities, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. I look forward to meeting with Cabinet to continue working on our plan to keep everyone safe and healthy, and to build a more resilient Canada – one that is fairer, greener, and more inclusive for everyone.”The Rt. Hon. Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada
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.
The Liberal Cabinet will also discuss the path to recovery and how it can build a more resilient Canada that is healthier and safer, cleaner and more competitive, and fairer and more inclusive for everyone.
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.
