Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Foreign Affairs

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Canada plays a unique role on the international stage as we address the most pressing challenges our world faces: climate change, peace and security, gender rights and the promotion of human rights. These critical issues require strong international partnerships, a commitment to key objectives and, most importantly, a leader. Minister Freeland and I are striving to make Canada that leader.

Some of Canada’s notable foreign policy achievements since I have taken on my new role include the lifting of U.S. steel and aluminum tariffs that led to the New NAFTA ratification process, leading a parliamentary delegation to China raising a number of key issues, and trips to several countries, including Columbia concerning the situation in Venezuela.

Over the past 4 years, I have led parliamentary delegations to the United States, China and Africa. This year, I accompanied World Vision to see the great work Canada is doing to support hundreds of thousands of Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh. Back home, I was incredibly proud to see the Thorncliffe community raise crucial funds for Rohingya refugees.
