The 2019 Canadian federal election (formally the 43rd Canadian general election) is scheduled to take place on October 21, 2019, to elect members of the House of Commons to the 43rd Canadian Parliament. Governor General Julie Payette dissolved the 42nd Parliament on September 11, 2019 on the advice of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

The 40-day campaign will see the incumbent Liberals attempt to retain their hold on power that they won in the 2015 election. Two of the three major parties will contest this election under new leaders: the Conservative, led by Andrew Scheer, and the NDP under Jagmeet Singh. The Green Party will again be led by Elizabeth May.
