In Monday’s federal election, Liberal incumbent Stéphane Lauzon was re-elected with 18,064 votes and 37.7 per cent of the popular vote. Bloc Québécois candidate Yves Destroismaisons followed with 16,975 votes and 35.4 per cent of the popular vote.

Lauzon was first elected as the Member of Parliament (MP) for Argenteuil-La Petite Nation in 2015 and was narrowly re-elected in 2019 over Destroismaisons, who was also the Bloc Quebecois candidate in that election. The 2021 federal election was also the second attempt at federal office for Louis-Seize, who had also been the Conservative candidate in 2019.
During the 2021 campaign, Lauzon heavily emphasized his record on securing infrastructure and high-speed internet funding for the riding.
