    I know Canadians living abroad are so far only allowed to do so if they've been out of Canada for less than 5 years and they have their vote count towards the riding they last lived in.

    But I would be curious as to if there are stats as to the size of this demographic, what percentage of out-of-country Canadians who are eligible to vote actually do so (ie. voter turnout), and who these "expats" voted for, both in the last election and/or historically if there are records. I was wondering if this data even existed or if there aren't data collected this way since the out-of-country voters' votes are divvied among their respective home ridings within Canada anyway.

    If anyone tracks this, it would be Elections Canada.

    Elections Canada would be the best resource for this information.
