Jason Kenney shares news on foreign credential recognition in Vancouver

Employment Minister Jason Kenney heads to Vancouver to deliver what the advisory bills as an "important announcement about foreign credential recognition," with a satellite event slated for Toronto, where Citizenship and Immigration Minister Chris Alexander will do the honours on Kenney's behalf.

Elsewhere on the ministerial circuit:

    • Minister of State for ACOA Rob Moore takes his ongoing -- and seemingly endless -- Atlantic Canadian tour back through Prince Edward Island, where he has back-to-back events beginning in Borden, where he'll join PEI Premier Robert Ghiz at MacDougall Steel Erectors Inc. before making his way back to Charlottetown for a second joint appearance, this time, alongside PEI Innovation Minister Allen Roach at 3 Points Aviation.
    • Meanwhile, Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz joins his provincial and territorial counterparts for their annual closed-door meeting, which is slated to unfold in Winnipeg this morning.
    • Back in Toronto, Minister of State for Seniors Alice Wong delivers another installment of federal funding to Bernard Batel Centre.

Finally, Green Party Elizabeth May's cross-country train tour is scheduled to reach its final destination later today, as she joins "hundreds of Greens from across Canada" descending on Fredericton for the party's biennial convention, which gets underway this evening.
