The Calgary Chamber of Commerce welcomes all newly and re-appointed ministers

CALGARY – The Calgary Chamber of Commerce would like to congratulate the 36 ministers, both newly and re-appointed to the federal cabinet by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau today.

The Calgary Chamber of Commerce stands ready to work with the federal government to build a competitive and prosperous future for Calgarians, Albertans, and all Canadians.

“As we begin this new chapter, let us move forward with vision and decisive action to ensure Canada is competitive, relevant, and nationally and globally responsible,” says Sandip Lalli, President & CEO of the Calgary Chamber of Commerce. “Now, more than ever, we must rally to the ‘AND’ by considering both sides of any issue we tackle. We look forward to working with Cabinet to demonstrate just how powerful the ‘AND’ conversation can be.”

In the spirit of advancing the AND conversation, we also look forward to partnering with the Honourable Jim Carr, Special Representative for the Prairies and the Honourable Chrystia Freeland, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs.
