Sophie Grégoire Trudeau,[1][2] (b. April 24, 1975) is the wife of the 23rd prime minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau.

She is a former television host. Trudeau is involved in charity work and public speaking. She focuses mainly on women's and children’s issues.

On March 12, 2020, Grégoire isolated herself, along with her husband, after she showed flu-like symptoms during the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic.[3] The Prime Minister's Office announced later that day that she had tested positive for COVID-19.[4] She had recovered by March 28.[5]

On August 2, 2023, Trudeau and Grégoire's separation was announced.[6][7]
