Since 2017, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has kicked off the new year hosting town halls from coast to coast to coast hearing directly from Canadians on how we create good jobs, strengthen the middle class, grow the economy, and ensure more opportunities for everyone.

This year, the Prime Minister will continue connecting and engaging with Canadians in their communities at public town halls across the country, discussing how we create growth that works for everyone, prepare for the jobs of the future, and build a stronger more resilient middle class.
