François-Philippe Champagne (born June 25, 1970) is a Canadian politician who has been Federal Minister of Foreign Affairs since 2019. He was elected to represent the riding of Saint-Maurice--Champlain in the House of Commons in the 2015 election for the Liberal Party.[1][2]

Career

Champagne was raised in Shawinigan, Quebec, and studied law at the Université de Montréal and Case Western Reserve University School of Law. After several years working as a senior attorney for Elsag Bailey Process Automation, he joined ABB Group in 1999, eventually rising to group vice president and senior counsel. In 2008 he joined Amec PLC as a strategic development director, and was designated a "young global leader" by the World Economic Forum. In an interview with The Globe and Mail in 2009, Champagne expressed his desire to eventually return to Canada and enter politics, citing fellow Shawinigan resident Jean Chrétien as an inspiration.[3]

Subsequently, returning to Canada, he became involved in a variety of business and non-profit ventures. He became the Liberal candidate for Saint-Maurice--Champlain, and was elected to Parliament on October 19, 2015.[4]

In June 2020, it was reported that Champagne had two more mortgages with the state-owned Bank of China, raising questions of potential vulnerability to foreign influence.[5]

Champagne has stated he is trilingual, speaking English, French and Italian.[3]

Champagne welcomed Trump's peace agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates as a positive and historic step towards a peaceful and secure Middle East, adding Canada was gladdened by suspension of Israel's plans to annex parts of the occupied Palestinian territories in the West Bank.[6]
