Federal Ministers Still Await Mandate Letters, Two Months After Majority Reshuffle — Opposition Kicks

According to a news article on CTV News, two months after PM Trudeau’s cabinet shuffle, federal ministers in Canada are still without mandate letters

Mandate letters are documents that lay out the priorities for each federal minister and signal to public servants the timeline or scope of policies the government wants to advance. 

The last round of mandate letters was issued in December 2021, three months after the last federal election. 

Following Trudeau’s recent assignment of new responsibilities to the military and the $1 billion cut on the national defence budget,  opposition parties seek clarification on how ministers prioritize their assignments. 

The Prime Minister’s Office has been requested to respond regarding whether all 30 ministers will receive updated mandate letters.
