The cabinet of new Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has been heralded and celebrated worldwide as “a cabinet that looks like Canada.”
Indeed, Trudeau has attempted to reflect the diversity of Canada by ensuring gender balance and including representation from the wide range of geographic, cultural, ethnic, linguistic and religious communities that compose the country. However, Justin Trudeau has captured a further critical component of Canadian society by inviting three Canadian immigrants to be part of his cabinet: Maryam Monsef, Amarjeet Sohi and Harjit Sajjan. The success of Canada has been largely built, sustained and defined by the efforts of immigrants over four centuries from across the globe, and this reality has been recognized and reflected in the composition of the new Canadian government. Prime Minister Trudeau’s decision to include three Canadian immigrants in his cabinet acknowledges the importance of past, present and future immigrants to Canada.
Let’s get to know Maryam Monsef, Amarjeet Sohi and Harjit Sajjan, three individuals who will contribute their skills, knowledge and experience while representing immigrants to Canada in cabinet.
The cabinet of Justin Trudeau has been designed to reflect a measure of the diversity and experiences that make Canada such an exceptional country. While the cabinet has been defined by gender balance and geographic, cultural and linguistic representation, our new government also includes Maryam Monsef, Amarjeet Sohi and Harjit Sajjan, three individuals who represent the critical importance of immigration to Canada. The success of Canada has been dependent for centuries on the contributions of immigrants from around the world, and this reality is emphatically acknowledged in the composition of our new cabinet.
