Monsef highlights Crew Trudeau’s assist for Indigenous girls throughout Saskatoon go to

Women’s Secretary Maryam Monsef rises during Question Time in the House of Commons on Parliament Hill in Ottawa on Tuesday, April 17, 2018. As trade and customs disputes dominate high-level discussions among G7 leaders, concerns about the gender equality agenda have grown at the G7 summit is dwarfed. However, Women’s Minister Monsef’s status says she is confident that Canada’s commitment to advancing women’s quality issues will remain a strong focus of G7 talks and that consensus will be reached on key actions.THE CANADIAN PRESS / Justin Tang

As the Ministerial Circle encounters the traditional midsummer slowdown in the summer ahead of the long weekend ahead, Status of Minister for Women Maryam Monsef – or at least the member of her office who is responsible for drafting media releases – promises an “important announcement” when she stops by the Wanuskewin Heritage Park outside of Saskatoon today: one that, according to the above notice, will provide new details about it, how her government seeks to strengthen “the economic security and prosperity of indigenous women”.

Last fall, Status of women Canada launched a call for proposals in support of projects that “create the conditions for indigenous women to thrive … by engaging them, their communities and the private sector, building on their strengths, identifying opportunities and addressing problems that impair their economic security or restrict their economic circumstances ”. Success.”

It’s a good bet that Monsef will share the details of one or more initiatives that have qualified for funding under the new program during her visit to Saskatchewan.

Also on the road today:

Quebec MP Stephane Lauzon launches a week-long funding series in Amos, in which he will highlight new federal funding to strengthen businesses in the Abitibi region.

Meanwhile, Newfoundland and Labrador MP Scott Simms Sim teams up with provincial and local officials for a “major infrastructure event” at Lewisporte Town Hall.


With both the House and Senate rising for the season, there are no scheduled committee meetings today.
