Justin Trudeau is instantly recognizable to most Canadians. After all, he's in the news often enough that almost anyone could see his face at any given time. While most of us only picture how he looks now, there are plenty of young Justin Trudeau photos out there, ones that show the Prime Minister has changed as much as any of us have over time.\nWhile he may be the leader of an entire country, Justin Trudeau has had his fair share of awkward childhood photos, pictures from his teenage years, and even some from his time as a teacher. We've picked out eleven of the best photos of a young Justin Trudeau!\nBaby in a backpack\nView this post on Instagram Spring 1972 - Printemps 1972 #tbt A post shared by Justin Trudeau (@justinpjtrudeau) on May 1, 2014 at 9:13am PDT\nHere we see Justin with his famous Dad, Pierre, carrying him around on his back.

A post shared by Justin Trudeau (@justinpjtrudeau) on Sep 4, 2014 at 12:13pm PDT\nThis one is a major throwback to those old school days of posing in front of a backdrop and trying your best to look nice. Justin Trudeau had obviously lost some teeth around this time, but are anyone's school photos that flattering? We think not.\nTaking a photo with mom and the bros\nView this post on Instagram #mothersday #fêtedesmères A post shared by Justin Trudeau (@justinpjtrudeau) on May 11, 2014 at 2:54am PDT\nJustin Trudeau posted this photo for Mother's Day, and it's clear where he gets his smile from. His brothers don't seem all that much into it, but what kid wants to pose for photos?\nShowing off that Montreal fandom\nView this post on Instagram Partisans des #CanadiensMTL pour toujours! #GoHabsGo ---- Habs fans forever. #GoHabsGo #tbt A post shared by Justin Trudeau (@justinpjtrudeau) on May 15, 2014 at 10:24am PDT\nAs Trudeau got older, he started to look more like how Canadians picture him now. Of course, when he was younger he preferred to wear his hair a bit longer. Nothing wrong with that!\nTrying to blend in with the adults\nPBA Lille | Wikimedia Commons\nWhat kid likes to wear a suit? Apparently Justin Trudeau was at least willing to get dressed up if he was heading out to a formal event. He's not actually doing a bad job of blending in in this 1982 photo!\nJust your average teacher\nView this post on Instagram #WorldTeachersDay #TBT 🇨🇦 #JournéemondialedesEnseignants #TBT A post shared by Justin Trudeau (@justinpjtrudeau) on Oct 5, 2017 at 9:18am PDT\nPrior to getting into politics, Justin Trudeau was a teacher, and in this throwback photo, you can see how much he's changed since stepping into the national spotlight. For one thing, he lost the glasses.\nRemembering his brother\nView this post on Instagram You would have been 43 today, but you’ve been gone 20 years now. I love you, little brother. Happy birthday Miche. 🇨🇦 Tu aurais eu 43 ans aujourd’hui, mais tu nous as quittés il y a 20 ans maintenant. Je t’aime mon petit frère. Bonne fête, Miche.

He is pictured here with Justin.\nBeing held by a First Lady\nWikimedia Commons\nAll of us got held as a baby, but not all of us were ever in the arms of a former First Lady.

In this photo, we get Justin Trudeau with both.\nThere are stories everywhere. If you spot a newsworthy event in your city, send us a message, photo, or video @NarcityCanada on Twitter and Instagram.
