Pam Goldsmith-Jones, MP for West Vancouver-Sunshine Coast-Sea to Sky Country, has been appointed parliamentary secretary to Canada's Minister of Foreign Affairs, Stephane Dion.

Goldsmith-Jones will be tasked with supporting Dion in achieving the mandate set out for him by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

"It is a privilege to work with Minister Dion," Goldsmith-Jones said in a release.

"Canada`s reputation in the world begins here at home, and I look forward to building strong relationships with my colleagues in the House of Commons and our partners abroad."

In his mandate letter to Dion, Trudeau tasked the new minister with everything from improving trade relations to combating climate change.

"As a former mayor of West Vancouver and acknowledged environmental champion, Ms. Goldsmith-Jones' experience will be vital as we work hand-in-hand to deliver on my full mandate, particularly the challenge of revitalizing Canada's public diplomacy and stakeholder engagement, and working alongside the Minister of Environment and Climate Change to make Canada an international leader on climate change," Dion said in the release.
