Trudeau contravened another section of the act when he didn't recuse himself from discussions that "provided an opportunity to improperly further the private interest associated with one of the institutions of the Aga Khan", Dawson said in the report.
The commissioner said that Trudeau and his family vacationed at the private island twice, once in December 2014, and then the 2016 holiday trip in question. In March, 2016, only Sophie Grégoire Trudeau and other family members went to the island, but not the Prime Minister.
The report also notes that a "senior American official of a previous administration" and friends were present during the December 2016 stay.
For Christmas that year, the Prime Minister and his family visited the Aga Khan's private island at the Bahamas.
"Obviously there was a mistake", he said.
"I've always considered the Aga Khan a close family friend, which is why I didn't clear this family trip in the first place", he said.
Trudeau says he has known the Aga Khan, Prince Shah Karim Al Husseini, since childhood.
"Justin Trudeau said that when he and the Aga Khan saw each other at his father's funeral in 2000, they hugged and he felt an instant re-connection and an instant closeness. I'm sorry I didn't and in the future, I will be clearing all my family vacations with the Commissioner's Office".
Dawson noted the Aga Khan has had relationships with most prime ministers since Pierre Trudeau's time, including Brian Mulroney, Jean Chrétien, Paul Martin and Stephen Harper.
The Canadian foundation of the Ismaili Muslim spiritual leader, the Aga Khan Foundation of Canada, receives tens of millions of dollars a year from the Canadian government for global development work.

"What we've learned today is Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has broken the law, there is no other way to put it but that he has broken the law with respect to ethics".
"Because there was ongoing official business between the government of Canada and the Aga Khan at the time each invitation was accepted, Mr. Trudeau, as Prime Minister, was in a position to be able to advance some of the matters of interest to the Aga Khan", the report, 11 months in the making, read.
