Ottawa: With the first deliveries expected in just three years, Canada and Germany said a new hydrogen pact will start a transatlantic hydrogen supply chain.

The development came after the Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau met the Chancellor of Germany, Olaf Scholz, who is on his Canada visit from August 21 to 23 to further strengthen their close partnership.

With stops in Montréal, Quebec, Toronto, Ontario, and Stephenville, Newfoundland and Labrador, the two leaders worked together to make progress on shared priorities.

The both leaders also stressed to extend support for Ukraine including addressing the broader global impacts of Russia’s illegal invasion such as food security, strengthening bilateral cooperation on energy and leadership on climate action, promoting trade and investment that benefits everyone, and advancing the transition to the clean economy, PM Trudeau said in a statement.

The two leaders addressed Canadian and German business leaders at the Canada-Germany Business Forum in Toronto today, to promote greater cooperation between their two countries in response to current global challenges exacerbated by Russia’s invasion.

They also agreed for allocation of $3.85 million to two projects to provide increased support to Ukraine’s security sector institutions.

PM Trudeau said in a tweet, “From signing agreements with leading German automakers, to announcing the Canada-Germany Hydrogen Alliance, @Bundeskanzler Scholz and I have been busy this week. Glad you could come to Canada, my friend – let’s keep delivering results for Canadian workers.”
