Federal electoral districts redistribution 2022

A New Federal Electoral Map is Taking Shape for Saskatchewan

Regina, Monday, May 9, 2022 – The Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission for Saskatchewan has proposed a new electoral map for consideration at public hearings this spring. The map introduces changes to Saskatchewan's federal electoral district boundaries and has been developed through an independent and non-partisan process. The proposal is the first step in the process of the development of a final report.

"The Saskatchewan Commission is pleased to present its proposal for public comment. We look forward to hearing everyone's views during the public consultation of our work," said the Honourable Justice Georgina Jackson, Chair of the three-member commission. Dr. Bonita Beatty and Professor Mark Carter are the other members of the Commission who are responsible for the readjustment of the province's federal electoral boundaries.

The proposal reflects Saskatchewan's increase in population from 1,033,381 in 2011 to 1,132,505, as captured in the 2021 Census, and takes into consideration communities of interest or identity, and historic and geographic factors. The proposal can be found at redistribution2022.ca. It will be published in the Canada Gazette on May 14, 2022.

Under the Electoral Boundaries Readjustment Act, the Commission's main aim in redrawing boundaries is to divide the province into 14 electoral districts that are as close to the electoral quota as reasonably possible, while taking into consideration the factors listed above. The electoral quota is calculated by dividing the population of the province by the number of electoral districts it has been allocated. In the case of Saskatchewan, the quota for each electoral district is 80,893 (1,132,505 residents divided by 14 electoral districts).

Public hearings

The Saskatchewan commission is holding 15 public hearings, in person and virtual, to gather comments and feedback on the proposed boundaries and electoral district names.
