44th Parliament of Canada
22 Nov 2021 - Present

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The Trudeau government had originally made 569 promises in its 2021 campaign platform and press releases.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.

« Des associations fransaskoises se disent préoccupées par le manque d’espace au Pavillon élémentaire Monique-Rousseau de l’École canadienne-française à Saskatoon. L’établissement scolaire n’a plus de place pour accueillir de nouveaux élèves. // D’après les derniers chiffres fournis par le Conseil des écoles fransaskoises (CEF), le Pavillon Monique-Rousseau a une capacité d’accueil de 380 élèves. Pourtant, il y a plus de 439 élèves y sont actuellement inscrits. […] Il rappelle notamment que la communauté fransaskoise demande “depuis de nombreuses années” la construction d’une nouvelle école pour répondre à la croissance du nombre d’élèves francophones dans la province. “C’est un problème systémique. […] À chaque fois qu’on doit demander une autre école, on doit carrément menacer et amener le gouvernement en cour. […] On ne fait pas partie de leur planification”, se désole M. Leis dans une entrevue accordée à l’émission Point du jour. »

« Il n’y a rien [sur les langues officielles] et c’est très surprenant, car c’était quand même une promesse importante durant la campagne électorale et c’était une promesse qui allait se mettre en place rapidement. On voulait agir et ça faisait déjà plusieurs années qu’à peu près tous les intervenants dans le milieu francophone hors Québec disaient : “C’est assez d’attendre, agissons”. Tous les partis semblaient sensibles à cette question. Et là, on se rend compte que, dans le budget, il n’y a rien pour la francophonie ni pour les francophones hors Québec. […] C’est décevant alors que ce sont des sommes qui ne sont pas si importantes, si on les compare à d’autres postes budgétaires. »
