The Prime Minister is in Africa for a gathering of French-speaking countries.


The Francophonie summit is taking place for the first time in more than three years.

French-speaking leaders will discuss the role of the French language in an increasingly digital age, but also a series of geopolitical issues.

The war in Ukraine has sent food prices soaring, especially in French-speaking parts of Africa, while leaders are concerned about a humanitarian crisis in Haiti.

Canada and Quebec have sent separate delegations and both considered not attending the event over concerns about the Tunisian government making anti-democratic moves.

Justin Trudeau says he wants to build stronger ties between Canada and African countries.
