The Liberal Party of Canada (French: Parti libéral du Canada), colloquially known as the Grits, is the oldest federally registered party in Canada. In the conventional political spectrum, the party lies between the centre[1], and the centre-left.[2]. The Liberal Party has dominated federal politics for much of Canada's history, holding power for almost 69 years in the 20th century, more than any other party in a developed country.

Michael Ignatieff has been the leader of the Liberal Party since he was elected at the May 2009 Liberal leadership convention.
