Election for Kings-Hants (Nova Scotia) Vacant Seat to Be Held on Fixed October Election
On October 21, 2019, the fixed date for federal elections, the election for the now-vacant seat in the House of Commons representing Kings-Hants (Nova Scotia) will be held.
Because this vacancy occurred less than nine months before October’s fixed-date general election, no by-election will be held.
On February 20, the Chief Electoral Officer of Canada, Stéphane Perrault, received official notice from the Speaker of the House of Commons that the seat for Kings–Hants (Nova Scotia) became vacant following the resignation of Scott A. Brison, who left office on February 10 to take a position working for the Bank of Montreal.
