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.

Promise History

2.10.33 - “We will continue to move forward to advance the priorities identified by Inuit, by: […] continuing to work with Inuit to improve food security in Inuit Nunangat, including the implementation of the Harvester Support Grant.”


“Today, the Minister of Northern Affairs, the Honourable Daniel Vandal, Premier of the Northwest Territories, Caroline Cochrane, Member of Parliament for Northwest Territories, Michael McLeod, announced that five additional Northwest Territories communities will be eligible for the Nutrition North retail subsidy. […] The inclusion of the communities of Nahanni Butte, Tsiigehtchic, Fort McPherson, Inuvik and Tuktoyaktuk supports efforts to strengthen food security, as these communities are now eligible for the retail subsidy during their seasonal periods of isolation. This will lower the cost of food during break-up and freeze-up, when food has to be flown in to the communities.”

In progress

“Budget 2021 proposes to provide $163.4 million over three years, starting in 2021-22, to expand the Nutrition North Canada program and enable the Minister of Northern Affairs to work directly with Indigenous partners, including in Inuit Nunangat, to address food insecurity.”

“Keenan”Nooks” Lindell, Ujjiqsuiniq Coordinator: It’s a 8 to 10 week program where we teach kids about hunting techniques but also the values, the Inuit values behind hunting techniques in our culture. It’s a really great program. I wish it was around when I was younger. And, I believe the kids get a lot out of it. They get a lot of great life skills and mainly those values that they’ll continue to use for the rest of their lives along with the skills.”

In progress

Reference Documents

“The Harvesters Support Grant is a new addition to the Nutrition North Canada program. It was developed in direct collaboration with Indigenous partners to increase their access to traditional foods by reducing the high costs associated with traditional hunting and harvesting. The grant supports the complete range of harvesting activities and traditions, from community decision making to ceremony and celebration of the harvest. It respects the inherent hunting and harvesting rights of Indigenous peoples in Canada. It provides $40 million over 5 years, and $8 million per year ongoing, to Indigenous governments and organizations representing eligible Nutrition North Canada communities.”
