Federal election 2019: When is it? Who's running? And other FAQs., 22 Apr 2019

Who's running?

It's too soon to answer that question in its totality for each of Canada's 338 ridings--that number will remain the same in 2019--but in general terms, the major parties will be the Liberals, who'll fight to retain their majority, the Conservatives, who'll want to unseat the Liberals to form a government, and the New Democratic Party, who'll want to grow their distant-third-place status into something a bit more competitive with the other two major parties. The Green party will run, of course, and the Bloc Quebecois, in Quebec. Former Conservative MP Maxime Bernier's new People's Party of Canada will have a full slate of candidates in 2019.
