Developing sound principles and practices in the pursuit of a high level of stewardship, effectiveness and accountability is critical to the accomplishment of the Foundation's mission.


The Foundation deems it necessary and desirable for the members of the Trudeau community to travel, both across the country and around the world, in the name of research, learning, disseminating ideas, and networking, and also to spread the influence of the members and enhance the Foundation’s visibility. Through our different programs, the Foundation supports the members’ capacity to travel to increase their knowledge or benefit society.
