The Canadian federal election of 2021 (officially the 44th Canadian general election) took place on September 20, 2021, and elected members of the House of Commons to Canada’s 44th Parliament. The Liberal Party, led by outgoing Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, won 160 seats, forming a second consecutive minority government.

The Trudeau government had originally made 569 promises in its 2021 campaign platform and press releases. This number was reduced to 352 by an extensive, multi-coder process of sorting promises according to their degree of precision and importance to society. Unclear and less important promises were removed from the analysis.

For an analysis of the achievements of Justin Trudeau’s first government (2015-2019), see Birch and Pétry (2019), Assessing Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Government. 353 promises and a mandate for change, published by Les Presses de l’Université Laval.

“The federal government has signed a memorandum of understanding with Nova Scotia’s Mi’kmaq chiefs on the transfer of federal health services. // Friday’s agreement with the 13 chiefs continues a process that will ultimately transform the design and delivery of health services for Mi’kmaq throughout the province. // “This is about making sure there is support from the province and the federal government to transform health-care delivery and reinstate self-determination in the delivery of health care to Mi’kmaq,” “

“In addition, the government will work with Indigenous partners to provide additional support for Indigenous health priorities: $2 billion over 10 years to address the unique challenges Indigenous Peoples face when it comes to fair and equitable access to quality and culturally safe health care services. […] These investments, on top of already significant funding, will help build a health care system that includes: access to high-quality family health services when they need them, including in rural and remote areas, and for underserved communities; a resilient and supported health care workforce that provides high-quality, effective, and safe health care services; […] access to home care and safe long-term care so Canadians can age safely and live in dignity”

“The Navigators are active in the CIUSSS du Centre-Sud-de-l’Île-de-Montréal and the CIUSSS du Centre-Ouest-de-l’Île-de-Montréal regions. The team is currently comprised of one male and two female navigators. // Doctors of the World’s team of indigenous navigators is available by phone for mobile clinic partners and indigenous community members to: // Accompany Indigenous people experiencing homelessness or at risk of homelessness who need to access services offered in the public health system ; // Provide support to teams from partner community organizations and medical teams in the public health system ; // To provide referrals or guidance. “
