Decisions on whether or not to grant a party official status are not made by the Government of the day; rather, party status is regulated by the Parliament of Canada Act. As per s. 50(2) of the Act, a "recognized party" is any House of Commons party that holds twelve or more seats. Under those circumstances, the Government (Liberal or otherwise) cannot deny a party status.
At the National level, there are approximately 20 registered political parties. Only three political parties have Official Party status in the House of Commons: Conservative Party (government), New Democratic Party (Official Opposition), Liberal Party (minority party). Political parties without Official Party status are the Bloc Québécois (4 members), and the Green Party (1 member).
