PM & NATO Head To Visit Petawawa


The Prime Minister and the head of NATO will visit Petawawa next week.

Prime Minister Trudeau and the head of NATO, Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, are scheduled to be at Garrison Petawawa on Monday, where they will hold a bilateral meeting at the Garrison, focusing on Canada’s contribution and leadership on the NATO missions.

That includes the mission to Latvia, which involved many Petawawa soldiers, watching out for trouble and deterring aggression in the Baltics. 

They’ll also discuss NATO’s broader work to defend international order, peace and security.   

“I look forward to meeting with Secretary General Stoltenberg to discuss pressing issues facing the Alliance and its partners, and to highlight Canada’s leadership on security challenges around the world", the Prime Minister said.

"This year marks NATO’s 70th anniversary. Now more than ever, it’s vital that NATO Allies work together to defend the rules-based international order, and build a more peaceful, prosperous future for people around the world", he added.

While in Petawawa, the two leaders will also have lunch with service members.   

There's no word on whether any specific announcements will be made.
