InfoJustin Trudeau is the eldest son of the late former Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau and his wife, Margaret Trudeau. He and his younger brother, Alexandre (Sacha), were both born on December 25. Pierre and Margaret Trudeau separated in 1977, when Justin was 6 years old. Pierre retired as Prime Minister in 1984.

Pierre continued to raise his children in relative privacy in Montreal. Justin studied English literature (BA, McGill University) and Education (B.Ed, University of British Columbia), eventually becoming a teacher in British Columbia. He is currently completing a Master of Arts in Geography at McGill University.

At the state funeral of Pierre Trudeau in 2000, Justin delivered a memorable eulogy.

Justin Trudeau has been a campaigner for winter safety since the death of his brother Michel in an avalanche on a ski trip in 1998. In 2003, he served as a panelist on CBC Radio's Canada Reads series, where he championed The Colony of Unrequited Dreams by Wayne Johnston.

On May 28, 2005, Justin Trudeau married Sophie Grégoire, a former model and Quebec television host.

He is one of several children of former Prime Ministers who have become Canadian media personalities. The others are Ben Mulroney, Catherine Clark, and Justin's younger brother, Alexandre. Though Pierre Trudeau and Brian Mulroney were longtime foes, this rivalry did not carry over to their sons, as Ben Mulroney was a guest at Justin Trudeau's wedding.

On 17 September 2006, Justin hosted a rally in Ramsden Park in Toronto, calling for Canadian participation in the Darfur crisis.

On 25 October 2006, Trudeau appeared on CTV's Canada AM. Asked about what he thought of Quebecers asking for national recognition, he replied that nationalism is "based on a smallness of thought.” His comments were seen as a criticism of Michael Ignatieff's push to recognize Quebec as a nation.

During the 2006 Liberal Party of Canada leadership convention, Trudeau endorsed Gerard Kennedy. When Kennedy dropped off after the 2nd ballot, Trudeau went with him to support former Environment Minister Stephane Dion.
