The world’s refugee crisis will be top of mind for Justin Trudeau as he meets with other world leaders in New York Monday.
The prime minister will join the likes of U.S. President Barack Obama, along with the leaders of Germany, Sweden, Ethiopia, Jordan, and Mexico at the United Nations for a roundtable discussion on the growing refugee crisis.
Trudeau will co-host a leaders’ summit on the issue where he’s expected to focus on the many challenges of integrating refugees into adoptive nations.
Trudeau will also speak to the UN General Assembly about the role government can play in fostering broad-based economic growth. He’s expected to discuss his plan for infrastructure in Canada, along with child benefits.
Meanwhile, the United Nations is assessing security in the wake of Saturday night’s explosion in Manhattan and the subsequent discoveries of other explosive devices there and in New Jersey.
