Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will appear before the House of Commons finance committee at a date and time yet to be arranged.

The committee is investigating his government's decision to give the WE Charity a contract to run a 900-million student-volunteer program.

Both Trudeau's family, and that of Finance Minister Bill Morneau have ties to the organization.

Morneau testified today he unknowingly failed to repay the costs of a trip to Ecuador in 2017 to see some of WE's humanitarian work.

Morneau says he sent the charity a cheque today for more than 41,000 dollars to cover the travel expenses.
