OTTAWA (ON), December 30, 2021 /CNW/ – A new year gives us a fresh start and new hope for tomorrow.

We have seen hope in the everyday.

Even after a difficult year, Canadians are showing resilience, compassion and adaptability.

These Canadians inspire me to keep working, to keep looking for better ways to help our communities and our children thrive.

In Inuktitut there is a concept called ajuinnata. Although it means a commitment, a promise, a wish, it is also much more – we find meaning in its action.

Together we are fighting the COVID-19 pandemic through vaccinations and public health measures.

Together, we think about creative and innovative solutions to save our planet.

Together we walk the path of reconciliation, on a lifelong journey of healing, respect and understanding.

With every hard question we ask, we find answers to how we can do Canada a truly inclusive and sustainable country.
