Below, is a live updating map with riding-by-riding results.
A mobile version of our results are available here for smartphones.
To form a government, a party needs 43 seats. At dissolution, Christy Clark's Liberals had 45 seats, Adrian Dix's NDP had 36 seats and four seats were held by independents.
This morning, Stars singer Torquil Campbell is railing against the provincial election results in British Columbia, even creating his own "movingtoamerica" hashtag in protest while stating the country "is going to shit."
Still, it is unlikely the BC Liberals will do anything other than find her a safe riding and generate a by-election very soon.
Jane Shin, the NDP candidate who was at the centre of a controversy over comments made online years before, as well as accusations over her credentials, has been elected as MLA for Bunrnaby-Lougheed.
“My congratulations to Premier Christy Clark on her successful re-election campaign and the formation of a new government, with which I look forward to continuing a positive working relationship. As Mayor, I’m committed to working with the Premier on building the partnerships we need to deliver on Vancouver’s priorities, including strengthening our local economy, ending street homelessness, making housing more affordable, and investing in urgently-needed transit improvements."
"My father would have been 85 today - it's his birthday," Clark said. "he never got to see me in politics."
"Our future has never been brighter," she said.
Christy Clark has stood to a riotous crowd of supporters at Vancouver's Sheraton Wall Centre, chanting "Christy. Christy."
"We didn't split the vote, we are the vote in Oak Bay-Gordon Head," Andrew Weaver told his supporters tonight. The University of Victoria professor said that campaigning had been a radical departure from his lab bench - and that he was so uncomfortable at the beginning of his campaign, he needed help knocking on doors.
"Tonight," he said. "We've made history. You've made history. We all made history together."

Asked if he would continue as leader, Dix said he would meet with his caucus and candidates over the coming days and they would decide together where they would go from here.
Dix promises to keep the government accountable. "We have brought change as a party," he says. He says the NDP will continue to fight for a just society, before thanking all the NDP candidates who ran, and congratulates all those candidates of all parties who have won. He says he regrets that participation was not greater, but that the NDP will continue to conduct politics in a positive fashion.
"Never a dull moment in B.C. Politics," he says, before telling his supporters that he has called Christy Clark and congratulated her.
"Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose, and in B.C. sometimes it rains," he says.
Adrian Dix has taken to the stage at NDP party HQ, to cheers of "NDP, NDP".

VANCOUVER - The B.C. Liberals will form a majority government, a stunning upset that has defied months of polling which had the party as many as 18 percentage points behind the NDP before the campaign started.
The Liberals re-elected incumbents, losing few of the seats they held before the election and even stealing some from the NDP they were never expected to win.
