Back in Montreal, International Development Minister Christian Paradis marks the fifth anniversary of the "devastating" Haiti earthquake by delivering "brief remarks" at an event hosted by the Maison d'Haiti.

Meanwhile, Environment Minister Leona Aglukkaq heads to the Minister's Regional Office in Iqaluit with news on the Nunavut fisheries sector.

Elsewhere on the ministerial circuit: 

- Aboriginal Affairs Minister Bernard Valcourt drops by the Quebec Aboriginal Friendship Centre to share the details of a new initiative aimed at "urban Aboriginal People in Quebec."

- Finally, Minister of State for Small Business Maxime Bernier "highlights the key role" of small and medium-sized enterprises at a lunch hosted by the Joliette local chamber of commerce.

Also in Iqaluit today: Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau, who continues his five-day Northern tour with a stop in Nunavut, where he'll host a closed-door confab for "business and economic leaders" before heading to a local elementary school to take part in a "community feast," and end his day with a meet-and-greet at the Franco-Centre.
