Marie Claude Bibeau remains agriculture minister after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced his new cabinet this week.

Christia Freeland moves from foreign affairs and international trade negotiations to deputy prime minister, a role that will be more influential than it has traditionally been in Canadian politics.

She leaves before the U.S. and Canada have ratified their new trade agreement with Mexico. Francois-Philippe Champagne is now minister of foreign affairs.
