The Council of the Federation meeting was held in Ontario to discuss how governments across Canada can work together with the federal government on priorities that matter to all Canadians.

 

Canada’s provincial and territorial leaders attended the Council of the Federation Meeting.

The agenda for the meeting of Canada’s Premiers included discussions on infrastructure, health care, and economic development, including enhancing economic competitiveness and expanding international trade. Premier Ford joined his fellow Premiers in calling on the federal government to fund the building of critical infrastructure, including roads, bridges, and transit, to get people and goods moving.

 

The Council of the Federation also continued to call on the federal government to increase the Canada Health Transfer by 5.2 per cent annually in order to provide the provinces with the flexibility needed to deliver the care patients need and deserve.

 

The Council of the Federation was established in 2003 to strengthen ties and foster a constructive relationship among Canada’s Premiers and with the federal government.
