This means that only a year and a half after the last Federal Election, nearly half of Canadians are ready to go back and hit the polls.

The last election was held on September 20, 2021, and saw Trudeau win his third term as Prime Minister but in a minority government. 

The next Federal Election is not legally mandated until 2025, however, elections could come much sooner.

The Ipsos poll found that 65% of younger Canadians between the ages of 18-34 want there to be an election in 2023.

While 47% of Canadians aged 35-54 want an election in 2023, and 38%of Canadians over 55 want an election in the new year. 

Regionally the breakdown is as follows for support of a 2023 Federal Election: Atlantic Canada (63%), Alberta (60%), Quebec (60%), Saskatchewan, Manitoba (55%), British Columbia (53%), and Ontario (46%). 

In April 2023, Justin Trudeau will mark 10 years as Liberal Leader, and eight of those years will have been served as Prime Minister of Canada.
