Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Canada’s premiers will meet in Ottawa next month in a bid to find a new funding deal for health care.

Two federal sources granted anonymity because they weren’t authorized to speak publicly on the matter say Trudeau will announce the meeting this morning.

The prime minister and his cabinet are on the third and final day of a retreat in Hamilton, Ont. ahead of the return of Parliament next week.

Ongoing negotiations towards a new health-care funding pact have been front and centre throughout the retreat.

The sources say the meeting is not intended to finalize a new pact but rather to solidify the steps needed to reach such a deal.
