Justin Trudeau will shuffle his cabinet Monday to fill the gap left by veteran MP Scott Brison's resignation.

But it remains to be seen whether the prime minister will take the opportunity to do a broader shakeup of his front bench to ensure it's in fighting form for the coming fall election.

"Obviously, this will require some changes to our cabinet and that's something that we're going to be announcing on Monday," Trudeau said Thursday, hours after Brison announced he's quitting cabinet.

He refused to tip his hand as to how big the shuffle will be. "This is an announcement that we will be making on Monday," was all he'd say.

Brison announced Thursday that he won't seek re-election this fall because he wants to spend more time with his young family. He said he's quitting cabinet now because he believes the government is best served by ministers who are running again.
