Justin Trudeau has been successful at securing his position in the 2021 elections as well. His government has been in power since 2015 and this has been their third straight consecutive win. With 36-day campaign both the parties made all possible efforts to compete against one another. The Conservatives and the Liberals are the only two who have been in the election race since the founding of Canada in 1867. Even this time, the competition was neck to neck.


Impact of elections on Canadian residents

Although the party wasn’t able to increase immigrations in recent years because of Covid-19 hit but they still successfully sustained the immigration numbers close to the expectations. The residents were provided necessary healthcare by the Liberal government during the pandemic and all necessary steps were taken to make sure the spread of Corona virus is limited.

Nevertheless, Liberals were much criticized by the opposition during the 2019 elections as they were held accountable for their response to the pandemic, economic and fiscal policies and foreign affairs like the country’s response to the situation in Afghanistan.

During this tug of war what suffered most were the social and global conditions. Issues like climate change, affordable housing and economic recovery were not paid much attention by any of the parties as they were immersed in the campaign.


What to expect next?

With this year’s win Liberals have assured the residents and immigrants of Canada to increase immigration, fast-track the processing of backlog applications and focus on improving credential recognition. Within 1-2 months, we should also get to know the members of Trudeau’s new cabinet. It is possible that current Immigration Minister Marco Mendicino will remain in his role. 

Apart from their goal-achievement after this year’s win, they have ongoing commitment towards reuniting families through Family sponsorship visa, accelerated immigrations, helping refugees, temporary workers and international students.
