The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today announced that the Governor General of Canada, Her Excellency the Right Honourable Mary Simon, will travel to Reykjavík, Iceland, from October 12 to 15, 2022, where she will attend the Arctic Circle Assembly and deliver a keynote address.
During Her Excellency’s visit to Iceland, which comes as Canada and Iceland celebrate their 75th year of diplomatic relations, the Governor General will engage with local, international, and Arctic leaders on Canada’s approach to issues of diplomacy, environmental change, and reconciliation within the northern circumpolar region.
In Reykjavík, the Governor General will meet with over 115 Canadian delegates attending the Arctic Circle Assembly, and will participate in a panel discussion on gender equality and diversity in Arctic leadership. Her Excellency will also meet with other world leaders participating in the Assembly, including the President of Iceland, Guðni Thorlacius Jóhannesson, and the President of Estonia, Alar Karis.
“The Governor General’s participation at the Arctic Circle Assembly is a valuable opportunity for Canada to engage with Icelandic leaders and other international partners on shared priorities, including addressing climate change, advancing reconciliation, and ensuring sustainable economic development throughout the Arctic.”
