OTTAWA, Canada – Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, on Thursday, issued 38 mandate letters, one for each Cabinet minister, “to help Canadians hold the government to account”. The letters also outline the prime minister’s “expectations for each minister, and give Canadians a clear idea of how the government will deliver its agenda.”
Prime minister Trudeau, new ministerial mandate letters to guide the Cabinet in moving Canada forward and building a better country for everyone, acknowledged that the COVID-19 pandemic has been difficult for many Canadians, but people from coast to coast to coast have overcome adversity – they adapted and helped one another when it mattered most. The government of Canada has been there for them since the beginning and will continue to be there every step of the way.
“The mandate letters outline the government’s plan to find real solutions to the challenges facing Canadians. They reaffirm a commitment to finish the fight against COVID-19 and support a strong economic recovery that leaves no one behind. The mandate letters also outline the government’s focus on tackling climate change, creating new jobs and growing the middle class, putting homeownership back in reach for everyone, delivering on $10‑a‑day child care, and walking the shared path of reconciliation.”
Prime minister Trudeau emphasized:
“As we work to finish the fight against COVID-19 and build a better Canada, our team will continue to put Canadians first and tackle the challenges of today and tomorrow. Together, we will get the job done on vaccines, take strong climate action, put homeownership back in reach, create jobs and grow the middle class, and walk the shared path of reconciliation.”
The prime minister’s office – communications in the news release said:
“The government of Canada is committed to being open, transparent, and accountable in all its work, and that is why the prime minister has publicly released ministerial mandate letters since 2015. These mandate letters also ensure that the government remains focused on delivering results for Canadians, as we continue to work to build a better future where everyone has a real and fair chance at success.”
