By-elections November 9, 2009 – Official Voting Results


February 2010

This report deals with the federal by-elections held on November 9, 2009, in the electoral districts of Cumberland–Colchester–Musquodoboit Valley (Nova Scotia), Hochelaga (Quebec), Montmagny–L'Islet–Kamouraska–Rivière-du-Loup (Quebec) and New Westminster?Coquitlam (British Columbia).

I am pleased to publish this report to satisfy the requirements of the Canada Elections Act, S.C. 2000, c. 9, and to ensure that Canadians have accurate and complete information on the by-elections. It is through such public reports that Parliament and Elections Canada make the Canadian electoral system more open and transparent.

This report presents the results of the vote, by polling division, for the November 9, 2009, by-elections, in accordance with section 533 of the Act. Subsection 534(2) of the Act also requires the Chief Electoral Officer to report on the administration of the Office since the last such report, as well as on certain actions taken by the Office in relation to the by-elections. A report will be published in March 2010 covering these by-elections.

Information on contributions and election expenses declared by the candidates in the November 9, 2009, by-elections will be available in March 2010 at

Chief Electoral Officer of Canada
