Argentinian working group on federalism in Canada on study visit

Member of the ParlAmericas’ Board of Directors Margarita Stolbizer (Argentina) participated on a study visit in Canada for Argentinian senior politicians and parliamentarians organized by the Forum of Federations, in collaboration with the Argentinian organization Red de Acción Política.

The purpose of the visit was to learn about Canadian federalism and governance, as well as its economic and political institutional infrastructure. The delegates met with various Canadian government departments, policy and international organizations, including ParlAmericas.

This coincided with the high level visit of Gabriela Michetti, Vice-President of Argentina and President of the Senate, which included a meeting with the Executive Committee of the ParlAmericas Canadian Section, chaired by the Hon. Robert Nault (Canada), current Chair of the Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs and International Development (FAAE), which was also attended by Ms. Stolbizer.
