Aftermath

The election resulted in a massive victory for the Progressive Party, which was able to form a coalition with their more urban allies, the Labour Party, as well as the United Farmers. Robert Forke remained as Prime Minister. The party made substantial gains in Ontario and Quebec, and began targeting voters beyond its rural base. Meanwhile, the Labour Party made substantial gains in the most urban areas of the country, and now held seats in all of Canada's biggest cities: Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Toronto, and Montreal.

The Conservative Party's vote declined, and they were no longer the largest party in Canada's parliament. Despite this, Arthur Meighen decided to remain Leader of the party. 

The Liberals had a mixed election. Led by Nova Scotian William Stevens Fielding, the party consolidated its support in the Maritimes, even gaining seats, and remained the largest party in Quebec, despite losing some ground. In the rest of Canada, however, the party's support was negligible. Fielding died in 1929 and was replaced as leader by James Gardiner, the former premier of Saskatchewan, who won a by-election the the Saskatchewan seat of Saskatoon in 1930.
