Our School
Pierre Elliott Trudeau High School opened in 2002.  Named in honour of Pierre Elliott Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada from 1968 to 1979 and from 1980 to 1984.
Trudeau was one of Canada’s most outgoing, vibrant, dignified, bold, charismatic, academic, and compassionate Prime Ministers. While his actions may have been unconventional, even rebellious, his achievements of repatriating the Constitution, fostering multi-culturalism and bilingualism, and global vision are acknowledged by both critics and supporters. In all senses of the word, Trudeau was a trailblazer who embraced his diverse traditions: Metis, Scot, French-Canadian. Trudeau's political record includes the following:
