Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced Wednesday, that Vincent Rigby has been appointed as National Security Adviser, the third National Security Adviser since Trudeau took over as Prime Minister in 2015. Vincent Rigby takes over after Trudeau’s former National Security Adviser, Greta Bossenmaier, announced her retirement in November after 35 years working in the federal public service.

Rigby has a variety of different experiences, including his duties at the Ministry of National Defense, the Ministry of Public Safety in Canada, and the Office of the Privy Council and Global Affairs Canada (the Department of Foreign Affairs).

“Vincent Rigby is the third person to hold the position under Trudeau’s government”

He previously supported the prime minister’s participation in three G20 summits, participated in talks to set new development goals at the United Nations, participated in the Arctic Council and helped manage the Afghanistan mission.

Rigby’s appointment comes as the federal government suffers with a number of sensitive security files, including the strained relationship with China, as well as the plane that crashed in Iran.

Vincent Rigby is the third person to hold the position under Trudeau’s government since Daniel Jean’s resignation in May 2018 following the controversy over the prime minister’s trip to India.
