Ottawa: Canada has corrected the allegations that India interfered in the country's general elections. This is explained in the official investigation report on foreign interference in elections.

India has not tried to interfere in Canadian politics and elections. Top Canadian officials also stated that they could not find any evidence that India tried to influence the election.

However, China has interfered in the general elections in 2019 and 2021. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's Liberal Party won both elections. The Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS), Canada's intelligence agency, has stated that it has received strong evidence of Chinese involvement. It is also said that China mainly tried to support those who were inclined towards them. CSIS had earlier accused India and Pakistan of trying to interfere in the 2019 and 2021 elections. The agency has recently released some parts of the report pointing this out. However, CSIS itself stated that the facts in the report were not fully confirmed. India has strongly reacted against Canada's allegations. The Ministry of External Affairs had responded that it is not India's policy to interfere in the democratic processes of other countries, but Canada is interfering in India's internal affairs. Justin Trudeau's allegation that Indian agents were involved in the killing of Khalistan terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar was the cause of the diplomatic rift between the two countries. Following this, Canada has come forward with a new accusation against India.
