Nova Scotia Nature Trust | Nova Scotians Protecting Nova Scotia

Annual Dinner & Silent Auction 2006

Justin Trudeau. It was with great pleasure that the Nova Scotia Nature Trust welcomed Justin Trudeau as our special guest at the Trust's 9th Annual Dinner and Silent Auction held on October 14, 2006 at the Halifax Marriott Harbourfront.

Justin, son of the late Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, is an avid outdoor enthusiast and environmentalist. He is currently pursuing a Master's Degree in Environmental Geography at McGill University in Montreal.

Justin has always loved the outdoors, working as a camp counsellor in Algonquin Park, a whitewater river guide on the Rouge River near Montreal, and a snow board instructor at Whistler-Blackcomb. As a director of the Canadian Avalanche Foundation, he promotes intelligent risk-taking and awareness regarding wilderness safety and back-country adventuring.

Justin is also the chair of Katimavik, our national youth service program, where he works to increase the engagement of Canada's youth with their country, their communities and their environment. He is also involved with Harvest Montreal, the region's largest food bank, and wilderness groups such as the Nature Conservancy of Canada and the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society.

Mr. Trudeau made a major conservation announcement on behalf of the Nature Trust, celebrating the successful protection of a special coastal wilderness on Nova Scotia's eastern shore. Learn more about the Shelter Cove campaign and Justin's announcement here.
