Congratulations to President @JoeBiden  and Vice President@KamalaHarris  on their swearing-in. Canada looks forward to working with you to defeat the COVID-19 pandemic, while furthering our shared goals of strengthening democracy, inclusive growth, and free and fair trade.

Fighting the pandemic is a TeamCA effort. Today I chaired a meeting with @MonaFortier , @bankofcanada  Governor, and provincial and territorial Finance Ministers to discuss the current state of the economy and how to build back a stronger, more inclusive country for everyone.

Together, we can build a stronger, more resilient middle class, grow the our economy, and create good jobs. Visit  to share your views about how to best grow CA 's economy.

Tonight, Canada and the United States reached an agreement, alongside Mexico, on a new and modern trade agreement, called the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement#USMCA ). Read the statement:

Canada condemns Russian aggression towards #Ukraine  in the #KerchStrait . We call on #Russia  to immediately de-escalate, release the captured vessels, and allow for freedom of passage. Canada is unwavering in its support for Ukraine’s sovereignty.

It is both an honour and a privilege to be named Canada’s first female Minister of Finance. I am eager to continue our govts work of helping CA s from coast to coast to coast get back on their feet. Together, we will ensure Canada’s economy bounces back from these difficult times.

Canada commends the courage of Venezuelans demonstrating their desire for a return to democracy. It is time for the Maduro regime to step aside and allow for a peaceful end to this crisis.

And a very personal congratulations to @KamalaHarris  ! Your victory is an inspiration to women & girls and to people of colour across our continent. I look forward to working w/ you to help both our countries crush this global pandemic & to crack more glass ceilings along the way.

The future of democracy depends on governing with integrity. Facts matter. Truth matters. Competence and honesty, among elected leaders and in our public services, matter.

Canada condemns killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Read the statement:

Israel and Canada are friends & allies. To claim I suggested otherwise, and to invent a comparison I never made, is dishonest & cynical. Canadians deserve better from their political leaders, @ErinOTooleMP . I trust you will apologize for your deliberately dishonest comments today.
