  Canadian federal election, 1993 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The election was called by new Progressive Conservative Party leader Kim Campbell, near the end of her party's five-year mandate.
The 1988 election had been almost wholly focused on the issue of the Free Trade Agreement with the United States, and similarly, the 1993 election was preceded by the agreement on the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).
This election was conducted under a single-member plurality (or first past the post) system in which the country was carved into 295 electoral districts with each one electing one representative to the Parliament of Canada.

 Elections Canada On-Line | Past Elections
In the case of an election by acclamation, for instance, the number of registered electors on the lists for that electoral district was included in the total number of registered electors for some elections, but not for others.
Voter turnout figures have been corrected where appropriate: to estimate turnout in these cases, the total number of votes cast in a plural-member electoral district was divided by the number of members elected from that district (see Scarrow 1962).
This percentage rises to 70.9 when the number of electors on the lists is adjusted to account for electors who had moved or died between the enumeration for the 1992 referendum and the election of 1993, for which a separate enumeration was not carried out except in Quebec, as the 1992 electoral lists were reused.
