The Canadian federal election of 2021 (officially the 44th Canadian general election) took place on September 20, 2021, and elected members of the House of Commons to Canada’s 44th Parliament. The Liberal Party, led by outgoing Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, won 160 seats, forming a second consecutive minority government.

The Trudeau government had originally made 569 promises in its 2021 campaign platform and press releases. This number was reduced to 352 by an extensive, multi-coder process of sorting promises according to their degree of precision and importance to society. Unclear and less important promises were removed from the analysis.

For an analysis of the achievements of Justin Trudeau’s first government (2015-2019), see Birch and Pétry (2019), Assessing Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Government. 353 promises and a mandate for change, published by Les Presses de l’Université Laval.

« En entrevue, le ministre O’Regan a dit préparer un large projet de loi qui obligerait les entreprises et les différentes branches du gouvernement à scruter en profondeur leur chaîne d’approvisionnement dans le but de protéger les travailleurs. […] Il y a deux éléments qui nous intéressent. D’abord, il doit y avoir une obligation de transparence dans la chaîne d’approvisionnement des entreprises. L’autre porte sur la vérification diligente, les obliger à vérifier.  »
