A byelection for the federal riding of Toronto-St. Paul’s will be held on June 24 to fill the vacancy left by former Liberal cabinet minister Carolyn Bennett (pictured), who resigned from her seat this past January.

The byelection announcement was made by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

The 73-year-old Bennett spent more than 26 years representing the riding of Toronto-St. Pauls, but was was bumped out of cabinet last summer following her announcement that she would not seek re-election. She was also named Canada’s next ambassador to Denmark in January.

Liberal staffer Leslie Church has been nominated to run for the party.

The Conservatives have nominated financial professional Don Stewart, while Amrit Parhar, who works as a director at a non-profit, will run for the NDP.
