The Prime Minister and the Premiers are also discussing the next steps to support the successful resettlement of 25,000 Syrian refugees to Canada, with a focus on how to support their integration following a robust security screening process.

Prior to the First Ministers’ Meeting, a climate science briefing is being provided by two of Canada’s top climate scientists: Dr. Greg Flato, Senior Scientist with Environment and Climate Change Canada, and Mr. Alain Bourque, Executive Director at Ouranos, a Montreal-based consortium that focusses its work on climate science. The briefing will be moderated by Jeremy Hansen, an astronaut with the Canadian Space Agency.

The briefing includes a Google Hangout during which high-school students will ask questions about the science and impacts of climate change.

Quote

The challenges we face as a country require a true partnership between the federal government and the provinces and territories, which can only be achieved by sitting down together and engaging in an open and continuous dialogue. I have the deepest respect for our Premiers, and for the knowledge and range of perspectives they bring to the table. It is exciting to engage with them today on the pressing issues of climate change and the resettlement of Syrian refugees, and I look forward to regular collaboration on a range of issues important to Canadians.” Right Honourable Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada.
