SOPHIE GRÉGOIRE TRUDEAU

GENDER EQUALITY ADVOCATE

  Madame Grégoire Trudeau

As a mother to three children and passionate advocate for gender equality, Sophie Grégoire Trudeau consistently uses her platform to elevate and expand understanding of the inherent power of girls around the world.

When women and girls have the opportunity to realize their full potential, there are no limits to their greatness. I have had the privilege to meet and learn from several Plan International Canada Youth Ambassadors who prove, time and time again, that good things happen when everyone is given equal opportunity to thrive and contribute to society.

Sophie helped launch Plan International Canada’s first-ever International Day of the Girl celebrations in 2012 – a UN-recognized day that spotlights girls’ rights. As a Global Ambassador for the organization, she continues to amplify youth voices by speaking at local events, engaging in youth-led roundtable discussions and advocating for girls’ rights and gender equality on social media.

Sophie champions a variety of causes including women and girls’ rights, mental health and teenage self-esteem. As a passionate yogi, she encourages physical activity and can often be found spending time with her family in nature.

Over the years, she has lent her support to a multitude of initiatives and organizations including: Because I am a Girl, Women’s Festival Toronto, the Canadian Mental Health Association and the Canadian Cancer Society. In 2013, she was the recipient of the UN Women National Committee Canada Recognition Award for her contribution to human rights.

Fully bilingual, Sophie studied at McGill University, Université de Montréal and ProMedia television and radio school before making the jump into the newsroom as a cultural correspondent for major outlets such as CTV’s eTalk and Le Canal Nouvelles (LCN).
