Federal electoral districts redistribution 2022

A New Federal Electoral Map is Taking Shape for Alberta

Calgary, Friday, June 10, 2022 – The Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission for Alberta has proposed a new electoral map for consideration at public hearings this September. The map introduces changes to Alberta's federal electoral district boundaries and was developed through an independent and non-partisan process.

"To give Albertans more time to participate in the process, the Commission has extended the deadline to request to make a representation at a public hearing to August 15 instead of July 31 (the date that appears in the insert). We look forward to hearing from the public," said the Honourable Justice Bruce McDonald, Chair of the three-member Commission. Donald Barry and Donna Wilson are the other members responsible for the readjustment of the province's federal electoral boundaries.

The proposal reflects the increase in Alberta's population from 3,645,257 in 2011 to 4,262,635, as captured in the 2021 Census, and considers communities of interest or identity, and historic and geographic factors. The proposal can be found at redistribution2022.ca.

Under the Electoral Boundaries Readjustment Act, the Commission's main aim in redrawing boundaries is to divide the province into 37 electoral districts with populations that are as close to the electoral quota as reasonably possible while considering the factors listed above. The electoral quota for each district is 115,206, which represents the result of the division of the total population of the province (4,262,635) by the number of electoral districts (37).

Public Hearings

The Alberta Commission is holding in-person hearings and may also hold virtual hearings to gather opinions on the proposed boundaries and electoral district names.
