Minister of Finance to Welcome United States Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin on First Visit to Canada

Finance Minister Bill Morneau will join with other Cabinet Ministers, Parliamentarians and business leaders in welcoming his American counterpart, United States Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin, to Ottawa as part of his first visit to Canada.

Building on previous face-to-face meetings in Washington and abroad, the visit will showcase the fact that Canada and the United States have one of the strongest partnerships between any two nations—one that is built on common geography, history and culture, and mutual respect.
