Yukon Premier Ranj Pillai attended the Council of the Federation summer meeting in Winnipeg, Manitoba this week where he discussed these and other shared priorities with his fellow Premiers from across the country.
At this meeting, Premier Pillai brought the Yukon’s perspectives and interests to discussions on a diverse range of issues, including:
The evolving wildfire situations across Canada, including in the Yukon, were at the forefront of many of the conversations.
The Council of the Federation released communiqués during their meeting in Winnipeg on the July 11 discussions focused on Strong Communities and the July 12 discussions focused on Economic Growth and Opportunities.
Canada’s Premiers are deeply engaged on the challenges our nation faces, from health care to critical minerals, labour markets to critical minerals, clean energy to Arctic security and sovereignty. I am proud to join my counterparts from across the country to bring the Yukon’s unique story and ambitions to the Council of the Federation table. I look forward to our continued work together on these important issues, and I express my warmest thanks to Premier Stefanson for hosting us in Winnipeg.
