It was the first meeting of the two leaders since the June election.

Trudeau also committed to working together.

The state of health care topped the agenda.

Premier Ford raised the need for continued support from the federal government to ensure the long-term sustainability and accessibility of high-quality health care services.

He also asked for a First Minister’s meeting on the issue to be held as soon as possible.

The leaders also discussed solutions to tackle the housing crisis.

Ontario has plans to build 1.5 million homes over the next decade.

Immigration was also touched on.

Ontario would like to see barriers removed that allow immigrants to work in the province, especially in the health care field.

The premier and prime minister also discussed the recent passage of the United States’ Inflation Reduction Act and Ontario’s move into the production of electric vehicles and batteries in Ontario.
