Over the past two years, a historic pandemic has turned Canadian lives upside down. But the House of Commons will remain nearly identical. After the elections he called, Justin Trudeau is still at the head of a minority government.

With slightly fewer nationwide votes than that Conservative Party> that The Liberal Party kept winning more seats. the Bloc Québécois> and the New Democratic Party > follow. the The Greens > close the dance and the People’s Party gets no seats.

For comparison, here is the distribution of seats in the dissolution of the House of Representatives (including the 5th independent > and 1 free space>). The number of MPs per party has hardly changed. In 2019 and 2021 he was missing 15 mandate holders in the election Liberal Party> to get a majority.

Now let’s look at the details by province, starting with Ontario. With 121 MPs, it is a key province on Canada’s political spectrum.

Compared to 2019, a slightly lower percentage of Ontarians voted for the Liberal Party>, especially in favor of the Conservative Party>. Justin Trudeau’s party won two more seats, but Erin O’Toole’s party won three.

in the Toronto area, Liberals > regained MP seats Independents> compensating for some lost constituencies. the Green Party made a breakthrough at the Kitchener Center although their leader, Annamie Paul, lost her fight at the Toronto Centre.

We are now going to Quebec, which has 78 members. The exception is the province, which has another party: the Bloc Québécois.

In Quebec, the number of ridings won by each party remained the same. the Bloc Québécois> almost won the riding of Châteauguay-Lacolle, to the detriment of the liberals>. But a recount completed Oct. 6 finally gave Justin Trudeau’s party victory, by just 12 votes ahead.

In Montreal and Laval, the Liberal Party> dominates both islands. the Bloc Québécois> continues to seduce the suburbs.

In Quebec, the Conservative Party > cements its gains, with seats won by a wider margin than in 2019. Halfway between metropolitan Montreal and the Capitale-Nationale, Trois-Rivières has remained bloquiste> followed by a few dozen votes for the Conservative candidate and a few hundred votes for the Liberal candidate.

Head towards the Canadian prairies where the castles are located Conservatives> these are Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba with a total of 62 ridings.

The center of the country remains dark blue. The high density of votes Conservative> drives up national numbers for Erin O’Toole’s party, but doesn’t necessarily win her more seats. This is where the People’s Party has made most of its gains, but without materializing them through elected officials.

Despite the solid foundations of Conservative Party> in Alberta, in Edmonton, winning margins have narrowed. the New Democratic Party > even managed to capture a second constituency in the city. The liberal candidate also increased his lead to several hundred votes and dethroned the incumbent conservative candidate.

Voting in Calgary conservative> also crumbled, to the point where a Liberal deputy in the metropolis.

We continue west to British Columbia. At the other end of the country, 42 seats were in the running.

On the Pacific Coast, the races were close. Provincial, the percentage of votes received by liberals> and the Conservative> changed by less than one percentage point from 2019.

But it all happened in the Vancouver area, where liberal > and New Democrats > nibbled the floor Conservatives>. the NDP> was also happy about a break-in The Greens>.

After the Pacific coast, here is the Atlantic coast. 32 seats are spread across New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland and Labrador.

the Conservative Party > won several constituencies given the Liberals> in the region. While Greens> managed to elect an MP in Fredericton in 2019, she has since joined the Liberal camp. The green vote collapsed in New Brunswick, as it did in the other Atlantic provinces.

And we end with the three territories of Canada, each having a seat in the House of Commons.

In the far north of Canada Conservatives > received fewer votes than in 2019 New Democrats> who got more overall. Despite this, the territories remained loyal to the parties they already represented.

At the time the data was updated, Elections Canada reported a preliminary turnout of 62%. Of the 27,366,297 people registered on the electoral roll, a total of 16,968,960 citizens voted. Those who registered on election day are not counted.


Data was first extracted on September 21, 2021 at 5:00 a.m. and then updated on September 24, 2021 and October 7, 2021. Historical election data is for the 2019 general election or by-elections since. We present the results of the parties that received the most votes nationally.

As for the historical affiliations of the candidates, it is that at the time of the dissolution of the House of Commons, which therefore takes into account the changes in affiliations of certain members between the two general elections. In each constituency, the Independent category corresponds to the independent candidate who received the most votes. For performance reasons, the driving geometry has been simplified.
