Federal electoral districts redistribution 2022

Part V – Conclusion

Any revision of an electoral map to reflect recent demographic changes is a complex exercise given the constant tension between the fundamental principle governing any redistribution, namely the search for electoral parity among all citizens, and the other considerations, referred to but not defined in the Act (such as community of interest), that can justify departure from that principle.

The report, prepared after an initial proposal and extensive public consultation, follows the framework established by Parliament. The Commission sought to reduce population inequities in all electoral districts while paying attention, as much as possible, to the other criteria specified in the Act.

The report reflects the compromises the Commission considered appropriate to address the concerns expressed during the public consultation process while respecting the current legislative framework.
