PM Trudeau Shuffles Federal Cabinet – January 12, 2021

In virtual ceremony, Governor General Julie Payette presides over the swearing-in of federal ministers. This shuffle follows Navdeep Bain’s decision to quit his ministerial post and not to seek re-election. François-Philippe Champagne thus takes over as minister of Innovation, Science and Industry while Marc Garneau moves to Foreign Affairs and Omar Alghabra joins Cabinet as minister of Transport. Jim Carr has been appointed to the federal cabinet as a minister without a portfolio while remaining the prime minister’s special representative for the Prairies. (no interpretation)
