* After the 1996 five-year census, the first data provided by Statistics Canada concerning the populations of electoral districts were based on the boundaries set out in the 1987 Representation Order. The data reflecting the geography of the 1996 Representation Order were provided by Statistics Canada in September 1998. It was, therefore, possible to use them for the by-election in Sherbrooke, but not for the by-election in Port Moody–Coquitlam. For the latter, the 1991 data were used.
