Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is spending his Easter weekend in Newfoundland and Labrador.

He and his family will be staying at the Fogo Island Inn, according to multiple reports.

A video on YouTube shows Trudeau carrying his youngest son while disembarking a plane at Gander International Airport (the closest major airport to the Fogo Island Inn), before boarding a smaller plane Friday afternoon.

Sophie Grégoire Trudeau and their other two children followed behind them.

The Prime Minister is taking “private appointments,” according to his itinerary on the Prime Minister’s Office website.

Trudeau wished Canadians a happy Easter in a statement issued Sunday, where he asks Canadians to think of others on the holiday.

“It is a sacred time for many, and an opportunity for us all to extend a helping hand to those in need, and to reflect on the notions of personal sacrifice and compassion that underlie the occasion.”

The Inn is located on Fogo Island, off the North coast of Newfoundland. The famous hotel has been featured in many articles from National Geographic, to the New York Times.

For an in-depth look at the inn, read The West Block’s 2014 interview with innkeeper Zita Cobb here.
