Prime Minister Justin is set to unveil his new cabinet ministers on Tuesday morning during a swearing-in ceremony.
Trudeau has said there will be gender parity among the regionally balanced appointments.
That means he had to find replacements for three female ministers who lost their seats in last month’s election — Fisheries Minister Bernadette Jordan, Gender Equality Minister Maryam Monsef and Seniors Minister Deb Schulte — as well as Infrastructure Minister Catherine McKenna who did not seek re-election.
Some ministers are likely to have an interest in remaining in their portfolios, but Trudeau has only publicly confirmed that Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland isn’t on the move.
Trudeau is under pressure to shuffle Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan to a new portfolio amid criticism for his handling of sexual misconduct allegations among the military’s senior ranks.
Once sworn in, any new faces in new places will quickly get a crash course on their portfolios and try to soak up details ahead of Parliament’s return on Nov. 22.
