Dear open-ouvert, thank you for the link on Voter Turnout data. Is it possible to get that information for each riding? Thanks

Hi, I would recommend you e-mail Elections Canada directly at: Ouvert-Open@elections.ca I was not able to find anything online, but they may have something for you. I hope this helps! Momin, the Open Government team.

This dataset has votes per candidate, but doesn't speak to the population or number of electors per riding. I wonder where one might get that supplemental data.

Hi Brad, thank you for your comment. Upon further research, I found that there are indeed no datasets that show population per electoral riding. I recommend you use the following form to suggest a dataset: http://open.canada.ca/en/forms/suggest-dataset I also found Voter Turnout data that may be of use to you: http://www.elections.ca/content.aspx?section=ele&dir=turn&document=index&lang=e Thank you, Momin, Open Government team.

It would be helpful if this dataset were updated to include the 2015 results.

Dead link. loc.parl.gc.ca exists now and has a query interface. Is the CSV still available? Thanks!

Hi Étienne, thank you for flagging this. The links have been updated and should work now. Regards, Kent on behalf of the open-ouvert team
