The Canadian PM praised India for its renewable energy targets and its thrust on clean energy.
Last year, Prime Minister Modi had visited Canada when he held extensive talks with the then Canadian Premier Stephen Harper.
Canada had agreed to supply 3,000 metric tonnes of uranium to energy-hungry India under a $254 million five-year deal to power Indian reactors.
The agreement for uranium supply, which came two years after protracted negotiations following the 2013 civil nuclear deal between India and Canada, was signed after comprehensive talks PM Modi had with Mr Harper in April last year.
Trudeau assumed office in November last year and had made waves by including four Sikh-Canadians in his Cabinet.
