When the Liberals came to power in the 1993 election, Prime Minister Jean Chrétien brought Marchi into the Canadian Cabinet as Secretary of State for Canada. He subsequently served as Minister of Citizenship and Immigration and Minister of the Environment. He was appointed Minister of International Trade in 1997.
In 2005, it was reported in the media that Marchi might challenge incumbent David Miller for the Toronto mayoralty in the municipal election in 2006. Marchi said only that he was talking with people. In February 2006, Marchi joined the Toronto law firm of Lang Michener LLP as a senior advisor, and also became President of the Canada China Business Council, and Chairman of the Canadian Services Coalition.
Marchi is currently serving as a Senior Fellow with the International Centre for Trade and Sustainable Development, in Geneva. He also teaches at Webster University, in Geneva, in the International Relations Department, and heads up an international initiative advancing the cause of global governance for migration.
