It’s three months to the day since Canada’s election officially started - and today, after a gruelling 11-week campaign and 2-week transition period, Canada finally has a new Prime Minister.
Justin Trudeau was officially sworn in as Canada’s 23rd Prime Minister earlier this morning. He also named his new Cabinet - 31 Ministers who’ll be responsible for guiding Canada’s ship of state over the coming years.
CBC News has the full list of Canada’s new Cabinet Ministers. Here at OpenMedia, we were watching closely to see who’ll be in charge of the key government departments responsible for our digital future.
Here’s a quick guide to some of those key Ministers, and the key digital rights issues they’re responsible for - we’ll be hearing these names a lot over the next four years.

Well, what a night that was! Like many of you, the OpenMedia team was up late watching the results roll in, and working out what it all means for our digital future.
This morning as the dust is settling, the overall result is clear. Justin Trudeau’s Liberals have swept to a majority government, meaning they’ll be able to govern without the support of any of the other parties.
