    The Government of Canada has made it a top priority to strengthen and renew our trilateral relationship with our North American partners, the United States and Mexico, in order to ensure a clean and prosperous future for all of our people.

    Today, Canada is hosting the North American Leaders’ Summit in Ottawa, in order to take coordinated action that will create sustainable economic growth, help transition to a low carbon economy, and provide better opportunities for Canadians, Americans, and Mexicans alike.

    During the Summit, the Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, the President of the United States, Barack Obama, and the President of Mexico, Enrique Peña Nieto, will discuss the opportunity for North America to become the world’s most competitive player in the clean growth economy – and the potential to create the jobs of today and tomorrow.

    The three leaders will also talk about ways to advance trade and competitiveness, because an efficient North American economy is vital for prosperity and for creating good-paying, middle class jobs.

    Above all, today’s Summit is an opportunity for three great nations – who share the same continent and the same values – to stand side-by-side and deliver real results for North Americans, and the entire global community.Quote

    “Today, the leaders of Canada, the United States, and Mexico come together to address shared challenges, knowing cooperation pays off, and that working in partnership always beats going it alone. The outcome of today’s discussions will improve the lives of Canadians, Americans, and Mexicans across the continent. We will streamline the flow of legitimate goods and trusted travelers across our borders, promote cleaner air and waterways, and work toward a competitive, low-carbon, and sustainable North American economy that creates good, middle-class jobs for our citizens.”

    —Rt. Honourable Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada
