The Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation is proud to announce that eleven new Trudeau mentors will enrich its community in 2016. In addition to building a special relationship with the 2014 Trudeau scholars, these respected Canadians – active in the public and private sectors, in the arts, and in not-for-profit organizations – will help other members of the Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation community, and the Foundation itself, build bridges between research and the public arena, foster better understanding of critical issues in Canada, and work toward sustainable solutions.
