Canada's Federal Electoral Districts

The Constitution of Canada requires that the number of seats in the House of Commons be recalculated and the boundaries of federal electoral districts be reviewed after each 10-year census to reflect changes and movements in Canada's population. This process is known as the redistribution of federal electoral districts.

Learn more about the 2012 federal redistribution process.

Federal electoral district boundaries were last revised following the release of the 2001 Census population numbers, which had led to an increase in the number of House of Commons seats from 301 to 308. The representation order that confirmed the new boundaries was made official on August 25, 2003. It took effect for the 38th general election called on May 23, 2004.

Note: The names of the following electoral districts were changed through legislation effective on the date indicated.
