In 2009, he was the Liberal Party’s Official Opposition critic for youth and multiculturalism, and the following year, he became the Liberal Party’s critic for citizenship and immigration.
He was selected as a secondary education and sports critic in 2011.
Trudeau was elected Liberal Party leader in April 2013 and led his party to victory in the 2015 federal election, increasing the Liberals’ third-place finish from 36 to 184 seats, the highest numerical increase by a party in a Canadian federal election.

Justin Trudeau Career
Following the passing of his father, Mr. Trudeau increased his political involvement. In the Papineau seat, he was elected a member of parliament in 2008. He was already considered potential leadership material for the Liberal party at this early stage.
In 2011, he was chosen to serve as a member of parliament once more.
Mr. Trudeau ultimately announced his intention to run for Liberal Party leader in 2012 after repeatedly renouncing the position. His opponents criticized him during the campaign for his lack of experience and policy positions—the same line of attack utilized in this general election campaign—but he easily won the job in 2013.
Mr. Trudeau came to office in 2015 on a wave of promises for “radical change” and other progressive goals.
The majority of any Canadian government in 35 years, 92 percent of these promises were maintained by Mr. Trudeau in his first term, according to an independent analysis by two dozen Canadian academics.
But he received criticism from both the left and the right in his first four years.
For instance, his backing for the Trans Mountain oil pipeline expansion proposal cast doubt on his environmental record.
Additionally, Mr. Trudeau swiftly reneged on his promise to implement federal electoral reform, which infuriated some left-leaning supporters who were looking forward to the possibility of an alternate voting system.
