May 19, 2016 Trudeau apologizes for elbowing NDP MP Ruth Ellen Brosseau as the prime minster tried to lead a Conservative MP through a crowd of NDP MPs during a tense debate in the House of Commons about assisted-dying legislation. “No amount of escalation or mood in this house justifies my behaviour last night. I made a mistake, I regret it, I’m looking to make amends,” Trudeau said.

Dec. 20, 2017 Trudeau apologizes after an ethics report says he broke conflict-of-interest rules during a family vacation at the Aga Khan’s private island. “The commissioner’s report this morning makes it very clear that I should have taken precautions and cleared my family vacation and dealings with the Aga Khan in advance. I’m sorry I didn’t,” Trudeau said.
March 26, 2018 Trudeau apologizes to members of the Tsilhqot’in Nation for an 1864 incident in which six chiefs from the nation were hanged. The incident stems from a deadly confrontation with a white road-building crew that had entered Tsilhqot’in territory without permission.

March 8, 2019 Trudeau apologizes in Iqaluit for the way Inuit in northern Canada were treated for tuberculosis in the mid-20th century, calling the policies colonial and misguided. ““We are sorry for forcing you from your families, for not showing you the respect and care you deserved. We are sorry for your pain,” Trudeau said.
May 23, 2019 Trudeau exonerates Chief Poundmaker in the community that bears his name, the Poundmaker Cree Nation, and apologizes for the chief’s unjust conviction for treason more than 130 years ago. “I know that the exoneration and apology I have offered today cannot make up for what has been lost.

Aug. 15, 2019 Just a day after the ethics report on the SNC-Lavalin was released, Minister of Crown-Indigenous Relations Carolyn Bennett issued an apology to the Inuit of Baffin Island in Iqaluit. The apology is the result of the Qikiqtani Truth Commission, which was set up to investigate an alleged police conspiracy to kill sled-dogs — the commission found no evidence of a deliberate scheme to kill the dogs, but did paint a picture of wide-ranging hardships encountered by Inuit. “We failed to provide you with proper housing, adequate medical care, education, economic viability and jobs,” said Bennett.
