Final counts pending
Liberals win minority government
Justin Trudeau will be returning to the Prime Minister's Office, but this time he will be leading a Liberal minority government. The Bloc Québécois will enter the 43rd Parliament with a far stronger presence. The NDP surge some pollsters anticipated did not materialize but the party does have enough seats to hold the balance of power in a Liberal minority government. The Conservatives increased their share of the popular vote and their seat count and continue to be the official opposition.

Popular vote breakdown by region
The Conservatives won the popular vote, the first time that a party has won the most votes but not the most seats since the 1979 federal election. They increased their share of the vote by nearly three percentage points, while the Liberals dropped almost seven points. The Liberals slipped across the country, but least dramatically in Ontario and Quebec. The Conservatives also dropped narrowly in these two provinces, but saw big gains in Western and Atlantic Canada.
The NDP saw their vote share drop, but their results were mixed across the country. The Bloc jumped 14 points in Quebec and the Greens picked up throughout Canada, most significantly in New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island.
