Canada's electoral history from 1867 to today

Retirement? What retirement?

by Maurice Y. Michaud (he/him)

While most Canadians aspire to retire when they reach a certain age, some politicians choose to keep going as long as they still have the desire and, of course, get re-elected.

This list shows who are the oldest sitting MPs and MLAs, federally and provincially, by jurisdiction. It is only accurate to the extent that the birth date of 356 of the 1,105 members currently in office is unknown. Also, for the territories, where there is only one MP, the datum here is meaningless.

This table is only accurate to the extent that the birth date of 356 of the 1,105 members currently in office is unknown.
Each territory has only one MP federally. It is also possible that, in some smaller jurisdictions, the elected members are all men or all women.
