Justin Pierre James Trudeau PC MP born December 25, 1971 is a Canadian politician. He is the 23rd and current Prime Minister of Canada and leader of the Liberal Party. Trudeau is the second-youngest Canadian Prime Minister, after Joe Clark. He is the eldest son of Pierre Trudeau, and the first to be related to a previous holder of the post. Born in Ottawa, Trudeau attended College Jean-de-Brebeuf and graduated from McGill University in 1994 and the University of British Columbia in 1998.
He gained a high public profile in October 2000, when he delivered a eulogy at his father's state funeral. After graduating, he worked as a teacher in Vancouver, British Columbia. He completed one year of an engineering program at Montreal's Ecole Polytechnique, from 2002 to 2003, and one year of a master's program in environmental geography at McGill University, from 2004 to 2005. He used his public profile to advocate for various causes and acted in the 2007 TV miniseries The Great War. In the 2008 federal election, he was elected to represent the riding of Papineau in the House of Commons. In 2009, he was appointed the Liberal Party's critic for youth and multiculturalism, and the following year, became critic for citizenship and immigration. In 2011, he was appointed as critic for secondary education and youth and amateur sport. Trudeau won the leadership of the Liberal Party in April 2013 and went on to lead his party to victory in the 2015 federal election, moving the 3rd-placed Liberals from 36 seats to 184 seats, the largest-ever numerical increase by a party in a Canadian general election.
