    Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will stop in Chicago as part of his trip to the United States next month, his office announced Friday.

    Trudeau, who last visited the U.S. in Oct. 2017, will give a speech at the University of Chicago highlighting the importance of public service, and how it can help strengthen the ties between Canada and the United States both economically and politically, according to a press release.

    The prime minister will also visit with city leaders and officials while he’s in Chicago.

    “I look forward to meeting with government and business leaders in the United States again to explore new opportunities for collaboration and growth, so we can build a more prosperous future for people in both countries,” Prime Minister Trudeau said in a statement.

    The prime minister is also scheduled to visit Los Angeles, where he will give a speech at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation, and San Francisco, where he will meet with community and business leaders.
