Prime Minister of Canada - The Right Honorable Justin Trudeau

Prime Minister of Canada - The Right Honorable Justin Trudeau

Born on December 25, 1971, Justin Trudeau is Canada's 23rd Prime Minister.

In Justin's view, Canada is a place where everyone has an equal opportunity to achieve. His dedication to Canadians and his determination to make Canada a country where everyone has access to the chances they need to prosper have been formed by his experiences as a teacher, parent, leader, and advocate for kids.

Justin Trudeau, the oldest of three boys, was greatly influenced by both his mother Margaret Trudeau and his father Pierre Elliott Trudeau as he grew up. His family has ties to both Eastern and Western Canada, and he was up speaking both French and English. This heritage influenced his opinion that diversity is Canada's strength and sparked his desire for public service.

With a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in literature from McGill University, Justin graduated in 1994. After completing his education programmed at the University of British Columbia, he spent several years instructing students in math, French, and other topics in Vancouver. He was able to have a beneficial influence on young people's lives by teaching. He is still dedicated to hearing young Canadians' views, whether they are being heard in the classroom or on Parliament Hill.

When Justin went back to Montréal in 2002, he ran across the Quebec TV and radio broadcaster Sophie Grégoire. They got married in 2005, and now they're happy parents of Hadrien, Xavier, and Ella-Grace.

Prior to going into politics, Justin worked as the Chair of Katimavik, a board member for the Canadian Avalanche Foundation, and a supporter of the environment and youth. He urged young people to connect with the issues that mattered to them and take part as active citizens while speaking at events and conferences across the nation. Through these encounters, he came to realize how important it was for young Canadians to have a louder voice on topics like education, the environment, and future economic prospects.

Justin entered politics to bring about change for the benefit of all Canadians. He developed a neighborhood-based, grassroots campaign in 2007 to gain the Liberal Party candidature in the Papineau riding of Montréal. In 2008, he won the election, and in 2011, 2015, and 2019 he was re-elected.

In April 2013, Justin was chosen as the Liberal Party's leader. He brought hundreds of thousands of Canadians into politics, the majority of them for the first time, through his leadership campaign, which was centered on creating a new, truly national movement of progressive Canadians. He worked closely with his team to develop a strategy to boost the economy, generate jobs, safeguard the environment, and support the middle class. Under Justin's leadership, the Liberal plan placed a strong emphasis on a more democratic government that truly reflects Canadians, respect for and promotion of freedom and diversity, and equitable economic opportunity for everyone.

On October 19, 2015, Justin led his party to victory, securing seats in every province and territory across the nation and becoming a majority government. He took office on November 4th, 2015.

On October 21, 2019, Justin successfully steered the Liberal Party to a second mandate from Canadians.

Justin leads a cabinet that toils diligently each day to keep Canada moving forward under his leadership as prime minister. His team is committed to bringing about solid middle-class jobs, lowering costs of living, protecting Canadian communities, battling climate change, and advancing Indigenous peoples' reconciliation. Justin, a fervent feminist, chose Canada's first gender-balanced Cabinet.
