The 2019 Canadian federal election (formally the 43rd Canadian general election) was held on October 21, 2019 to elect members of the House of Commons to the 43rd Canadian Parliament.

The Liberal Party, led by incumbent Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, won 157 seats to form a minority government. The Liberals lost the majority government they had secured in the previous federal election in 2015. They also lost the popular vote to the Conservatives, which marks only the second time in Canadian history that a governing party formed a government while receiving less than 35 per cent of the national popular vote.

For an assessment of this government’s performance during its first mandate (2015-2019), see Birch and Pétry (2019), Bilan du gouvernement libéral de Justin Trudeau : 353 promesses et un mandat de changement, published by Les Presses de l’Université Laval.

“‘I am pleased to announce that the government of Canada is launching its first phase of the inquiry into murdered and missing indigenous women and girls,’ Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould said at a press conference Tuesday on Parliament Hill. ‘As a first step, we will meet with the families in the national capital region with the goal of hearing their views on the design of the inquiry and what it needs to achieve. And over the next two months, we will hear from more families, other indigenous peoples, national aboriginal organizations and a range of front-line services workers and others.’ Indigenous Affairs Minister Carolyn Bennett said the first phase of the inquiry will determine the objectives, focus and parameters of the inquiry.”
