Canada's Election Day has finally arrived, which means it is your last chance to vote and decide the course of the country for the next four years. It also means that tonight, Canadians will be watching out for our newly-elected officials through the announcement of the results of the federal election, live on CBC, CTV, CHCH, and Global. With this important broadcast tonight, your weekly Monday night shows will be making way for elections airtime. So to avoid disappointment this evening, we've compiled all TV shows cancelled tonight for elections in Canada on the aforementioned channels.

Starting at 7 p.m. EST on CBC and CTV, 8 p.m. EST on CHCH, and then 9 p.m. EST on Global, election coverage will be in full swing on these channels. Make sure to check your local time zones for the exact times in your city. 

If your favourite shows have been affected, regular programming will resume next week. You can seize the opportunity tonight to watch the elections and find out who will hold the fate of the nation in their hands until 2023.

Once you're all done voting and satisfied with your choice, you can sit back and watch history unfold with the rest of the country. Sure, you might be missing shows like The X Factor: Celebrity and The Big Bang Theory, but it's just for one night!
