Chrystia Freeland

Minister of Foreign Affairs

Included on this list for the second year in a row, for the last year Chrystia Freeland has been one of the hardest working Ministers in the Canadian government. With a once harmonious relationship with the United States facing a more tenuous future, her role as the key ambassador representing Canada’s best interest with foreign governments has never been more crucial. From tough talks on NAFTA with an unpredictable and ever-more hostile President Donald Trump, to dealing with conflict with Saudi Arabia over human rights injustice, Freeland’s job is cut out for someone with thick skin, bravery, and an ironclad resolve. We think she’s just the person for the job.
