Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced Monday that he will welcome European Union leaders to Newfoundland and Labrador next month.
St. John’s will play host to the Canada-EU leaders’ summit Nov. 23-24. Trudeau will host the President of the European Council, Charles Michel, and the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen. The Summit will be an opportunity to underscore the already strong ties between Canada and the EU and will allow leaders to discuss ways to build on this relationship.
During the Summit, the leaders will discuss progress on key commitments established during the 2021 Canada-EU Leaders’ Summit in Belgium, including creating jobs and opportunities and building the middle class; fighting climate change and halting biodiversity loss; increasing collaboration on technology, research, and innovation; and building sustainable and resilient economies for future generations. The leaders will also reaffirm their support for strengthening trade under the Canada-EU Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement.
In his discussions with EU leaders, Prime Minister Trudeau will also highlight Canada and the EU’s shared commitment to promote democracy, human rights, clean energy, gender equality, and the rule of law to create a better, more equitable world.
