Administrative history

The Progressive Conservative Party of Canada was established in 1942 when John Bracken, a Progressive party premier of Manitoba, became leader of the national Conservative Party and Leader of the Opposition in the House of Commons. The Party enjoyed electoral success under John Diefenbaker, forming governments in 1957, 1958 and 1962, but losing the elections of 1963 and 1965. Diefenbaker was ousted from the leadership in 1967.
