Council of the Federation

In 2003, the premiers of all 10 of Canada's provinces and 3 territories agreed to form the Council of the Federation. The council meets twice annually to collaborate over issues regarding the state.

From their website, the council states the following objectives:

  • Promote interprovincial-territorial cooperation and closer ties between members of the Council, to ultimately strengthen Canada;
  • Foster meaningful relations between governments based on respect for the Constitution and recognition of the diversity within the federation;
  • Show leadership on issues important to all Canadians.
