The Canadian federal election of 2011 was held on May 2, 2011 to elect members of Parliament. The ruling Conservatives gained a net of four seats, with a gain of five in Ontario and six in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, including that of Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff, while losing seven seats in British Columbia to the Social Democrats and Liberals. The Liberals, with a net loss of eight, suffered their second consecutive election in which they lost seats and their party leader was defeated, and the Social Democrats earned a net of three, gaining three British Columbian seats and one Ontarian riding while losing one seat to the Greens, who earned an MP for the first time in history. The election was regarded as a status quo election, bolstering the seat totals of the majority government and the Official Opposition at the expense of the beleaugered third party.
