I am deeply honoured to be named Canada’s Ambassador to the United States by Prime Minister Trudeau.

Canada has no closer friend and ally than the United States. Our connections are enduring and profound. The close personal, economic and security ties between our people are at the heart of our extraordinary relationship.

Today, our two countries share the top priority of tackling the Coronavirus pandemic. My immediate priority remains working together with the United States for the protection of our people and our economies.

There is no relationship in the world quite like the one between Canada and the United States. I look forward to working with the dedicated team at the Embassy in Washington and Canada’s network of missions across the US as we work with our American friends to continue to deepen the vibrant and successful partnership that is at the heart of our shared security and prosperity.
