There are 88 women in this Parliament, meaning they now hold 26 per cent of seats. This is only a 1.7 percentage point increase from the last Parliament, when women held 24.3 per cent of seats. There are 13 more women in the new Parliament; however, since there was an increase in total seats since 2011 — from 308 to 338 — the percentage of women in the House does not increase substantially.

There are 10 MPs under thirty in our new Parliament. The youngest parliamentarian in the 42nd Parliament will be the same man as the 41st Parliament: Pierre-Luc Dusseault, 24, who was originally elected in 2011 at the age of 19.

The Liberals' majority win vaulted their share of seats in the House of Commons to 54.4 per cent. They only won 34 seats in 2011. Overall, Canadians are sending 338 MPs to Ottawa, up from 308 in 2011.

Four provinces—British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario and Quebec—saw their total number of seats boosted thanks to the latest riding redistribution. If they wanted to win a majority government, Liberals had to win big in every region. Mission accomplished: the party swept the Atlantic, won two-thirds of Ontario, and came out on top in more than half of Quebec.

14.2% of MPs in the new Parliament are visible minorities, up from 9.7% in the previous Parliament. Liberals elected the lion's share of visible minorities who won seats, largely thanks to the party's revival in Canada's biggest cities. (This breakdown does not include Indigenous MPs).

58.3% of MPs in our new Parliament are rookies, up from 35.1% in the last Parliament. The 42nd Parliament will not only include 197 rookie MPs, but also 17 parliamentarians—mostly Liberals—who lost in 2011 and managed to win back their seats.

3% of MPs in our new Parliament are Indigenous, up very little from 2.3% in the previous House. The NDP fielded the most Indigenous candidates of any party, but only managed to elect two to the House of Commons.
