A media release said the leaders will talk about advancing action on climate change, gender equality, and Indigenous rights.  They will also discuss Russia’s illegal invasion of Ukraine and the importance of working closely with partners throughout the Americas and around the world to continue to hold Russia accountable and support Ukrainians who have been displaced.

At the Summit, Prime Minister Trudeau will work with world leaders to promote trade, create jobs, and drive economic growth, according to the release.  He will also promote democracy and reinforce the continued importance of COVID-19 testing and treatments, both to identify dangerous variants and to contain future outbreaks. He will be joined by Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mélanie Joly.

While in Los Angeles, Prime Minister Trudeau will hold additional meetings to strengthen joint action on climate change and nature protection. He will be joined by Minister of the Environment and Climate Change, Steven Guilbeault.

“Canada enjoys profound and longstanding relationships in the Americas. The Summit of the Americas is a unique opportunity to work with world leaders in the region to agree on a forward-looking agenda that tackles the challenges of our time, including advancing climate change and promoting democracy. By working together, we can build a better future for people in the Americas and beyond,” said Trudeau.
