Federal electoral districts redistribution 2022


The Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission for the Province of Nova Scotia complied with its mandate under the Electoral Boundaries Readjustment Act, R.S.C. 1985, c. E-3 by filing its report on November 15, 2022. The report was tabled in the House of Commons and referred to the Standing Committee on Procedure and House Affairs (PROC) on November 17, 2022. PROC received three objections to the report and chose to forward all three to the Commission in March 2023 for its consideration.

The Commission's report is included in its entirety in this final document. The new section entitled Addendum to the Report – Disposition of Objections provides the Commission's consideration and disposition of the objections endorsed by PROC. As a result, the following change is made:

  • The electoral district of Pictou–Eastern Shore has been renamed Central Nova.

This change is reflected in the accompanying section entitled Addendum to the Report – Disposition of Objections.

In all other respects, the Commission's report of November 15, 2022, is unaltered.
