Global News is projecting Liberal MP Anita Anand will be reelected in the riding of Oakville.
Liberal MP Bonnie Brown held the seat from 1997 until 2008, when she was defeated by Conservative Terence Young.
He held the seat until 2015, when he lost to Liberal John Oliver. Oliver did not seek re-election in 2019.
Young ran again in the 2019 federal election, but lost to Anand by 6.9 percentage points. Anand served as the minister of public services and procurement under the Liberal government. In this role, she has led Canada’s effort to supply COVID-19 vaccines during the pandemic.
The riding is located in the Halton municipality, specifically in the city of the same name.
Oakville includes the southern portion of the city and borders on Lake Ontario.
Immigrants make up 33.5 per cent of the riding’s population, with 22.1 per cent of recent immigrants hailing from China, according to the 2016 census.
