Sometime before July 6, 2019, a by-election will be announced for the seat in the House of Commons representing Nanaimo–Ladysmith in the province of British Columbia.
On January 7, the Chief Electoral Officer of Canada, Stéphane Perrault, received official notice from the Speaker of the House of Commons that the seat for Nanaimo–Ladysmith (British Columbia) became vacant following the resignation of Sheila Malcolmson, who resigned on January 2 to run in a provincial by-election.
Under the law, the by-election date must be announced between January 18 and July 6, 2019, and will signal the start of the by-election period.
According to Elections Canada, the earliest date the by-election can be held is February 25, 2019.
