Since the last census of the Muslim population was in 2011, the current number is likely in the neighborhood of 1.5 million, or more than 4% of the total population.

It is clear that Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party of Canada is the political home for Muslims. Among those surveyed, 65% said they voted for Trudeau, versus 10% voting for the far left NDP and 2% for the Conservatives.
