2015 Preliminary Voter Turnout: 68.5%
Detailed election results on a riding-by riding basis are available at Elections Canada


It is important to note that the electoral map of Canada has changed significantly since the 2011 election. The 2015 election was conducted with 338 electoral districts, compared to 308 ridings in 2011. To make the 2011 results more useful, it is helpful to see how the 2011 results would look like with the new riding boundaries. Elections Canada has calculated what would have happened with the same votes cast at each poll redistributed into the new districts:

Transposition of 2011 results into new electoral districts used in 2015:

Political affiliation    2011 Results Using New Boundaries 2011 Actual Results Difference
Conservative             188 166 22
NDP 109 103 6
Liberal                  36 34 2
Bloc Québécois           4 4 0
