The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today announced that the United Nations (UN) Secretary-General, His Excellency, Mr. Ban Ki-moon, will be in Ottawa and Montréal on a working visit, from February 11 to 13, 2016.

Canada is an active and committed member of the United Nations – not only because the UN provides essential support to millions of people in need – but also because it serves Canada’s interests. A more peaceful world is a safer and more prosperous world for Canada, too.

During the Secretary-General’s visit, Canada will reaffirm its commitment to the UN, to effective cooperation, and to renewed leadership on the world stage. The Prime Minister will highlight Canadian engagement on a number of key global issues, including: climate change and climate finance; the situation in Syria, Iraq, and surrounding countries; refugee resettlement; and the health of women and children around the world.

The Prime Minister and the Secretary-General will also meet with Canadian youth and discuss the importance of building diverse and resilient societies that promote peace and broad-based economic growth.

Quotes

Secretary-General Ban has made invaluable contributions to the UN, in particular in spearheading real action on climate change and sustainable development, and in bringing global attention to key humanitarian crises. We are honoured that Mr. Ban has accepted our invitation to visit Canada so early in the government’s mandate.

– Rt. Hon. Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada

If we are to build a more peaceful and prosperous world – a world where our diversity is seen as a strength– then a strong United Nations is essential. Canada is proud of the part it has played in the UN’s successes, from protecting human rights to peacekeeping. I want to restore Canada’s voice and leadership role at the UN.

– Rt. Hon. Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada
