Election day will be held on Sept. 20, 2021. The federal election will be 36 days in length, the shortest possible permitted under elections law. Canadians may expect at least five weeks of campaigning, with federal party leaders crisscrossing the country and promoting themselves, their candidates, and their platforms, under ongoing COVID-19 public health restrictions.
