first ministers conferences

Began in 1906 under Prime Minister Wilfrid Laurier

  • Held annually after the Victoria Charter of 1971.
  • Meet ever year to discuss topics that involve both the provincial and federal governments.
First Ministers Conferences
where is the prime minister

The last meeting of all 13 Premiers in Canada was held in the final weeks of July in 2013. They discussed the senate, the Canada Pension Plan and the Infrastructure. But the Prime Minister was not in attendance. The Prime Minister does not have many First Ministers Meetings because it gives the Premiers a chance to gang up on the Federal Government.

  • The previous First Ministers meetings was in 2009 after the 2008 global financial crisis.
  • Harper has not attended a First Ministers Meeting since 2009.
Where is the Prime Minister?
common issues

Economic Growth

  • Jobs
  • Health Care

  • Language Rights
Common Issues
common issues1

The Federal Government is proposing a new Jobs Grant for skills training. Premiers across the country, from British Columbia to New Brunswick, have warned Ottawa that they will boycott the new Jobs Grant unless serious changes are made.

Common Issues
are they united

On some topics they are. But when the federal government isn’t involved, they don’t get along.

  • East vs. West
  • Oil vs. No Oil
  • BC vs. Everyone Else
  • Atlantic Provinces vs. Everyone Else
  • English vs. French

Which premier has the most power? To find out that you can take a look at population.

  • Ontario’s population is 13.51 million
  • P.E.I.’s population is 140,204
  • Nunavut’s population is 31,906, Less than Belleville (49,454)
  • Because the premier of Ontario has to try and make 13.51 million people happy at one time, the premier does not have all the power.
  • The premier of Nunavut, however, only has to govern 31,906 people. This means she can make more people happier and won’t have as many people fighting with each other over certain political things. Technically the premier of Nunavut, along with the smaller provinces and territories, has more power.

Canada is officially a bilingual country. How many provinces are officially bilingual?

  • Prime Minister Harper has not attended a premier’s meeting since 2009. What do you think about that?
