These meetings provide an important opportunity to share the Yukon’s perspectives with counterparts across the country. Canada’s provincial and territorial leaders are working together on vital issues like infrastructure, housing and health care. This platform plays a crucial role in promoting collaboration between different jurisdictions, facilitating stronger connections, and enhancing a collective understanding of shared priorities and differences. I look forward to our continued cooperation on these crucial issues and thank Premier Tim Houston for hosting us in Halifax.
