You got us here

Friends, we’ve come a long way since that first step in 2012 -- but we only got here because we worked together.

It was just over five years ago in my home riding of Papineau that I started a journey with this movement to lead the Liberal Party of Canada.

Back then, the Harper government was leaving far too many families behind -- and they never grasped that the key to Canada’s growth, opportunity, and progress is a thriving middle class.

With a commitment to building a stronger middle class, my goal then was the same as it is today: to give every single Canadian a real and fair chance to succeed -- with good new jobs, real help for families, and optimism for what lies ahead.

That is what our plan for real change is about, and real change is working.

When our opponents wanted to cut, we invested in Canadian families, and our shared future. And now, we're doubling down on that plan -- investing in you, and your community.

The Canadian economy has added 450,000 jobs since our government took office, with the fastest-growing economy in the G7. Youth unemployment is at an historical low. And we’re offering more help for families and workers.

We’ve come a long way since that first step in 2012 -- but we only got here because we worked together. You chipped in, you volunteered, you talked about the Liberal movement with your friends and family -- and for all that you've done to make this possible, I cannot say thank you enough.

But we have so much more to do, and, right now, I’m asking you to walk with me once again. Already 1,663 Canadians have chipped in $82,134 online towards our end-of-October goal of $100,000. There are only a few short hours before this deadline, but I would be so grateful if you made a donation in support of our work together before midnight, tonight.

Show your support  

Thank you,

Justin Trudeau
Leader of the Liberal Party of Canada
