Canada says it will host the G7 summit next year in the heart of the Rocky Mountains.

The announcement came at this year’s leaders’ meeting in Apulia, Italy.

The member countries — Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy and Japan — rotate hosting duties each year.

Next year’s meeting is set to be held in Kananaskis, Alta., southwest of Calgary.

That’s where the G8 summit was held in 2002 — back when it was a group of eight, with Russia as a member.

This year’s summit is taking place under the shadow of ongoing wars in Ukraine and the Middle East.
