April 27, 2023 - Ottawa, - Canada Department of Finance Canada

This week, from April 28 to 29, the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, the Honourable Chrystia Freeland, will attend a meeting of European Union Economy and Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors in Stockholm, Sweden.

The Deputy Prime Minister has been invited by Sweden, the current President of the Council of the European Union, to discuss the impacts of Russia’s illegal invasion of Ukraine, how best to support the economic stability and reconstruction of Ukraine, and how to further hold Putin and his regime responsible for their criminal war.

While in Stockholm, the Deputy Prime Minister will also meet with partners and allies to discuss the important opportunities for workers and business presented by building the global clean economy, and the role that Canada and Canadian workers can play in providing our allies with the goods and resources they need.

An itinerary of events will be released in advance of the meeting.


“Canada and the European Union are united in our support for the people of Ukraine as they continue to heroically resist Putin’s illegal and barbaric full-scale invasion. In fighting for their lives and their sovereignty, the people of Ukraine are also fighting to defend democracy and the rules-based international order that Canada and the European Union rely on. Ukraine must be victorious—and we will be there until they are.”
