OTTAWA / TORONTO – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Tuesday unveiled his new cabinet lineup that will help his Liberal government enter its third term. Recruits and veteran ministers who have been shuffled into new portfolios have less than a month to settle into their new jobs before Parliament is recalled on November 22.

Here is the current state of the Liberal cabinet, including facts and biographical information on each member, compiled by

In terms of provincial representation, 42 percent (16) of cabinet ministers are from Ontario, including 29 percent (11) from Quebec. There are no ministers from the Northwest Territories or the Yukon. Neither Saskatchewan nor Nunavut elected a Liberal in the 2021 federal election.

Besides the Prime Minister, the Liberal cabinet continues to be made up of 50% men and 50% women. Trudeau has promised since 2015 to choose a cabinet based on gender parity.

With regard to the diverse representation within the firm, the breakdown is as follows. Eighteen percent, or 7 cabinet members are people of color, while 3 members identify as LGBTQ2S +, and there is only one Indigenous member (Dan Vandal, who became aware of his Métis heritage later in life).

Seven of the members have never held a ministerial position before. Five of the recruits are women and two of them are men. Most of them have been in federal power since at least 2015, but Pascal St-Onge is also a rookie MP and Marci Ien was first elected in a by-election in 2020.
