As the current chair of the Council of the Federation (COF), BC Premier John Horgan is gearing up to host the 2022 Summer Meeting of Canada’s Premieres in Victoria this summer.
The meeting, scheduled for July 11th and 12th, will see all 13 provincial and territorial premiers flock to the Fairmont Empress Hotel and work to “form closer ties,” the COF explains.
During the two-day event, premiers aim to show leadership “on important issues that matter to Canadians,” according to the council.
On July 11th, premiers are also set to participate in a meeting with Indigenous leaders at Songhees Wellness Centre, located along Admirals Road.
Established in 2003, the COF sees its members meet in their respective chair’s province or territory each year and work collaboratively to foster constructive relationships among governments.
Brian Pallister previously held the position of COF chair, but after he resigned as Manitoba’s premiere last August, Horgan stepped up from vice-chair and assumed the role.
