“We are ready to keep delivering on the things that matter most to you – making life more affordable, growing the economy, and creating good jobs for the middle class. We have the right team, made up of accomplished people who reflect the diversity and talent of our country. Together, we will keep building a strong future for the middle class, and for all Canadians.
”The Rt. Hon. Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada
- Since 2015, the Ministry has made real progress for the middle class and those working hard to join it – from lifting almost half a million children out of poverty with the Canada Child Benefit to delivering on our promise of $10-a-day child care.
- With the changes announced today, the Ministry retains a total of 38 ministers, in addition to the Prime Minister. In keeping with the precedent set in 2015, there is an equal number of women and men.
- The Cabinet is the central decision-making forum in government, responsible for its administration and the establishment of its policy. Its members are each responsible for individual portfolios or departments.
