The Society has chosen to award Canada’s 23rd Prime Minister with an Honorary Fellowship for his passionate commitment to our environment, including his government’s leadership on climate change, its historic investments in Indigenous-led nature conservation and Indigenous Guardians programs, and its action on Ocean conservation and protection, including its leadership in reducing plastic waste.

In accepting the honour at the 2020 Fellows Show, Trudeau said “I share this with Indigenous communities, young Canadians, activists, and all Canadians who are helping to protect our land and oceans and who are partnering with us in the fight against climate change.”
