Address by the Minister of Foreign Affairs on steel and aluminum

| Global Affairs Canada | speeches

Since the U.S. Commerce Department began its section 232 investigation, the Government of Canada has engaged with members of the administration, U.S. legislators at the state and federal levels, and U.S. business and labour leaders to defend Canadian industry and fight for Canadian workers. I would like to thank Canada’s many friends in America for their support.

Address by the Minister of Foreign Affairs at Round Seven of Negotiations on the Modernization of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA)

| Global Affairs Canada | speeches

Good day. I’m happy to be in Mexico once again to meet with my counterparts as we continue our work to modernize and improve the North America Free Trade Agreement. Thank you, Secretary Guajardo, for hosting us so graciously, as you always do. I would note that since we lifted the visa requirement between Canada and Mexico, tourism has grown significantly. In fact, as of September, there has been a 52 percent increase in visitors from Mexico to Canada, including students and tourists. These are welcome numbers, and demonstrate the strength and importance of the Canada-Mexico relationship, and indeed of the entire North American community.

Speech by the Honourable Chrystia Freeland, Minister of Foreign Affairs, to the Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs and International Development

| Global Affairs Canada | speeches

Mr. Chair, Honourable Members, thank you for the invitation to appear before the Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs and International Development, to speak about how our government is delivering on its foreign policy priorities. Last June in the House of Commons, I laid out Canada’s foreign policy priorities. At their very core, these priorities rest on the importance of maintaining a stable, rules-based international order. For our government, building on Canada’s long tradition of global engagement means a strong voice that stands up to intolerance and nativism, while also addressing the legitimate concerns of those who feel left behind by globalization. It means demonstrating constructive leadership within the established international order and with our partners to promote peace, security and prosperity in the world. Mr. Chair, this is exactly what our government is doing.
