View Link »

Liberal Party candidate Anita Vandenbeld is projected to win re-election in Ottawa West-Nepean.

The Ontario riding of Ottawa West–Nepean includes the Ottawa River and a portion of the city of Ottawa.

Vandenbeld first ran for the seat in 2011, but was defeated by Conservative John Baird.

Baird was first elected MP of the riding in 2006. He held the seat consecutively until 2015, after which he did not seek re-election. Under former prime minister Stephen Harper, Baird served as foreign affairs minister from 2011 to 2015.

In 2015, Vandenbeld ran again and won the seat with almost 56 per cent of the vote. She was re-elected in 2019. Vandenbeld was also the parliamentary secretary to the minister of national defence in the Liberal government.

In the Ottawa West–Nepean riding, immigrants make up 28 per cent of the riding’s population, with most recent immigrants coming from India and the Philippines, according to the 2016 census.
