Prime minister's mother spoke at event hosted by organization that received federal funding for jobs

CTV News: "An organization that received $5.8 million from the federal government to help job seekers from under-represented communities is refusing to say if it paid the prime minister’s mother, Margaret Trudeau, to speak at an event it held this month.

"She appeared in’s Think2030 series, on October 14, to speak about mental health and the effects of the pandemic. Elevate is a Toronto-based not-for-profit that says its mission is “to unite Canada’s innovators to solve society’s greatest challenges.”

"It currently lobbies the federal government for funding through FedDev Ontario, a federal regional economic development agency. As recently as 2019, Elevate was also registered to lobby the Prime Minister’s Office for funding for one of its events, Elevate Tech Fest."
