The suspect, who has not been formally named, was due on court to hear the charges against him over Thursday's intrusion at Rideau Hall, Royal Canadian Mounted Police spokesman Mike Duheme told reporters.
A spokesperson for the RCMP wouldn't elaborate on the incident and said she couldn't provide any further details.
A large number of police officers, including at least one armoured vehicle, were deployed to the northwest corner of the sprawling Rideau Hall estate on Thursday morning.
Trudeau, his wife, and their three children do not live at the traditional Canadian Prime Minister's residence, because that building is in disrepair.
"Thanks to the swift and diligent actions of our employees, the incident that unfolded earlier this morning on the grounds of Rideau Hall was quickly and safely resolved", said RCMP Assistant Commissioner Bernadine Chapman, commanding officer of National Division. The RCMP has said Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his family, as well as the Governor General, were not on site at the time of the incident.
Duheme said Hurren had several weapons but wouldn't go into specifics, and it appears he was acting alone. "As soon as the RCMP is in a position to do so, we will release the details for these charges".
Rideau Hall is the official residence of Gov. Gen. Julie Payette.
"All of our staff are safe", said the statement. The suspect did not respond until 6:53 a.m., giving police his name and some other information.
Police dispatched the emergency response team shortly after 7 a.m. and the man was arrested and brought in for questioning shortly before 8:30 a.m.
The Mounties provided an update on the investigation Friday morning.
"I can not emphasize enough how effective our members were in being vigilant, reacting quickly, and using successfully deescalation techniques to resolve this highly volatile incident swiftly, and without injury to anyone", said Duheme. The vehicle was disabled on impact, the RCMP said.
