If we look back to the past year 2015, there are some highlighted figures that remained in the limelight of the big world changes. One of those figures is the most talented, the most charming and highly intellectual Justin Trudeau of Canada. He is the current and the 23rd Prime Minister of Canada and also a leader of Liberal Party. Politics run in his blood as he is the son of former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau serving as the second youngest person to hold this office. He has been in politics since a very young age that makes him not only the first choice of the Canadian people but makes him a wealthy pocketed man in Canada. Lets have a look on how rich is he:
How Rich Is Justin Trudeau?
As of a report of 2013, Justin Trudeau made a disclosure of his personal finances and a revelation of his bank account to the Ottawa Citizen newspaper. Soon after this revelation, he faced a flood of criticism from different minds which he calmly cleared with his brilliance. It is famous for him that he became rich even before he became a politician. That was for his public speaking abilities and his contribution as a guide in different ventures like a teacher in a school, a white-water river guide and the most interesting a monitor at a summer camp for children.
As one of the best guest speakers of Canada, Justin earned $450,000 a year at different conferences. How cool is this to utter some smart words and raise your worth to a new extent. He also collected an estimated amount of $750,000 in campaign contributions.
Wealth at Home – The Family Inheritance
There is a big part of Justin Trudeau’s current net worth that belongs to the inheritance he took from his family. The family income is originated not with his father Mr. Pierre Trudeau but his grandfather Charles-Emile Trudeau who opted Montreal gas stations to earn his money in early 20th century. He invested his money into real estate, owned the Montreal Royals baseball team and a part of Montreal’s Belmont Park. Out of all this wealth, Justin now receives a dividend from the inheritance which earns him $20,000 a year. His inherited net worth has been estimated to $1.2 million.
In 2010, Justin Trudeau made a clever decision to sell their Outermont house for $1.6 million (for being a huge one). He bought a smaller and semi-detached home near Mount Royal for $777,000 about which he once remarked: “ people are surprised to know that I don’t live in a castle.”
Current Earnings as the President
According to a list of Parliamentary indemnities, salaries and allowances of 2015, Justin was set to earn a salary of $224,000. This is the story of him being an MP whose salary is worth $167,400 and being a party leader he gets $56,800.
This was all not enough that the elections of 2015 made him the title of Prime Minister who was entitled a salary of $334,800 for the year 2015 (excluding a 2,000 car allowance).
The leader of Opposition Stephen Harper has always been a rival to Justin Trudeau and he has been criticizing the source and the usage of Justin’s wealth alongwith a number of people who could not digest him being the Prime Minister of the country.
