Defence Minister Harjit S. Sajjan will travel to Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago, to attend the twelfth Conference of Defence Ministers of the Americas from October 10-12, 2016.

The three-day biennial conference provides an open forum for ministers of defence and delegates from the 34 nation states representing the Americas to foster mutual knowledge, analysis, debate, and an opportunity for an exchange of ideas and experiences on defence and security matters. Minister Sajjan looks forward to the opportunity to meet with regional partners, and discuss Canada’s ongoing Defence Policy Review and commitment to UN peace support operations.

This event is an important element of Canada’s engagement in the Americas and will help inform continued engagement in the region.
