He appeared to overcome a challenge in Monday's national elections from the rival Conservatives - despite his race fiasco.

The famously right-on leader, 47, was embroiled in scandal in recent weeks after a series of photos emerged of him wearing skin paint.

He was forced to issued grovelling apologies for repeatedly changing his race in bizarre costumes for parties in his youth.

His expected victory comes four years after he channelled his politician father's star power to become prime minister.

CBC projects Trudeau's Liberals won't win the majority of seats in Parliament and will have to rely on another party to pass legislation.

Ahead of the vote, polls showed a neck-and-neck race across the country.

Trudeau battled Conservative leader Andrew Scheer for the chance to form the next government.
