The New Democratic Party is a social-democratic federal political party in Canada. The party was founded in 1961 out of the merger of the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (CCF) with the Canadian Labour Congress (CLC). On the Canadian political scene, the party sits to the left of the Liberal Party. Since 2017, the NDP has been led by Jagmeet Singh, who is the first Indo-Canadian to lead a major party in Canada. The federal and provincial level NDPs are more integrated than other political parties in Canada, and have shared membership.
