The new NAFTA came into force last week, and today President@lopezobrador_  and I spoke about how the deal strengthens the friendship between our two countries and is good news for people and businesses in both Canada and Mexico. More on our conversation:

I’m happy to announce the appointment of @BobRae48  as our next Ambassador to the @UN . He has dedicated his life to serving Canadians and our country, and I know he’ll work hard to advance our interests around the world in this new role.

We’re making sure you have the support you need: If you receive Old Age Security, you will get an extra $300 this week. And if you are on the Guaranteed Income Supplement, you will get an extra $200 this week too. These one-time payments are automatic - you do not need to apply.

We’ve been focused on keeping you safe and getting you the support you need since the beginning of this pandemic, and this morning I’m giving an update on where we are and the road ahead. Watch it live:

We’ve been pulling out all the stops to help you make ends meet, to help your business keep its doors open, and to make sure everyone - from students to seniors - has what they need. And we’ll keep investing in you so we can come back stronger. Because we’re in this together.

Met with Cabinet today. In this morning’s meeting and at our retreat earlier this week, we focused on protecting your health, safely restarting our economy, and fighting systemic inequalities - including systemic racism. We know there’s more work to do and we’re ready to do it.

We’re staying focused on getting our front line workers the personal protective equipment they need to stay healthy and keep you safe. Because as we restart our economy and more people head back to work, the need for this kind of equipment will continue to grow.

Across the country, companies are doing what they can to help out. Just look at @Samuelsohn1923  in Montreal. They usually make suits and coats, but they’ve retooled so they can make hundreds of thousands of surgical gowns for doctors and nurses instead. #MadeInCanadaProject

Stay home. It doesn’t matter that the weekend’s almost here - if you choose to gather in groups or hang out with your friends, you’re putting yourself, those around you, and our health care workers at risk. So take this seriously. Do the right thing and stay home this weekend.

To the people who seem to think they’re invincible: You’re not. So go home and stay home. You’re not just putting yourself at risk, you’re putting others at risk too - nurses and doctors, grocery store workers, your grandparents, and so many others. #StayAtHomeSaveLives 

As you cope with the COVID-19 situation, we're focused on helping you get through this. Here’s what we’re doing to support you. ⤵️
