The head of the Canadian government won re-election on 20 September, but had to make several changes to the Cabinet, due to several ministers leaving their posts.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has presented his new cabinet of ministers after winning the elections earlier in September. He named Mélanie Joly as the new Minister of Foreign Affairs and Anita Anand became the new Minister of Defence succeeding Harjit Sajjan in the post.
Trudeau also appointed Steven Guilbeault, a long-time green activist, as the new Minister of Environment and Climate Change. Guilbeault thus replaced Jonathan Wilkinson, who received the portfolio of the Minister of Natural Resources.

François-Philippe Champagne, former minister of foreign affairs, replaced Navdeep Bains as Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry and Registrar General of Canada. Bains announced plans to leave this office back in January 2021.
The cabinet reshuffle follows Trudeau's third election victory as he ran for prime minister again in September 2021. However, his Liberal Party once again failed to achieve a parliamentary majority losing to the Conservatives despite gaining five seats compared to the 2019 election results. Hence, Trudeau was forced to form a new minority government despite apparently hoping to form a majority government following the 2021 snap elections.
