Watch Live: Biden and Trudeau to hold press conference after meeting in Canada
President Biden and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau are set to hold a joint press conference in Ottawa on Friday to mark Mr. Biden's first trip to the country as president.
Trudeau welcomed Mr. Biden outside the Canadian Parliament in the capital, where the two leaders were set to hold a bilateral meeting before Mr. Biden addresses Canadian lawmakers. Following their press conference, Trudeau will host the president and first lady for a gala dinner.
In his remarks to the Canadian Parliament, the president "will underscore how the U.S.-Canada partnership benefits not only our two countries but the entire world, and that by working together, we can address some of the biggest challenges we face," National Security Council spokesman John Kirby said earlier this week.
Canada is one of the United States' closest allies, and the shared border makes the country a critical economic and trade partner. The two leaders are expected to announce a deal on migration that will allow both countries to turn away migrants apprehended between official points of entry along the U.S.-Canada border, a change that Canada has long sought.
