Dear Friends,

I am pleased to extend my warmest greetings to everyone attending Ottawa's 4th annual Salsa Convention.

This event offers dancers of all skill levels a chance to learn new techniques from renowned teachers and to showcase their abilities.

I am certain that everyone in attendance will appreciate the grace, elegance, and artistry on display throughout this convention.

I would like to commend the organizers for their dedication to supporting and promoting Latin dance. I would also like to thank everyone participating in this event for sharing their talent with the community.

On behalf of the Government of Canada, I offer my best wishes for a memorable experience.



The Rt. Hon. Justin P. J. Trudeau, P. C., M. P.,

Prime Minister of Canada
