Canada’s Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, has announced that Prince Albert will visit Canada from May 7 to 8. During the visit, Prime Minister Trudeau and the Sovereign Prince Albert will discuss “our shared commitment to the Paris Agreement, and the actions our countries are taking to address climate change and protect the world’s oceans,” the Prime Minister’s office said on May 1.

They will also discuss the work of the Canadian chapter of the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, which focuses particularly on the Canadian Arctic, including its communities, biodiversity, and oceans.

“Canada and Monaco are partners in the fight against climate change, and share a commitment to protect our world’s oceans,” Prime Minister Trudeau said.

“I look forward to meeting with Prince Albert to discuss how we can work together to promote further action and leave a cleaner, healthier planet for future generations.”

This will be the first formal meeting between the Prime Minister and Prince Albert.
