Redistribution Maps for the 2018 General Election

Redistribution is a legislative process that redraws electoral district boundaries so that there are a similar number of electors in each district to maintain fair and adequate political representation.

In December 2015, Bill 115the Representation Act, 2015, was passed by the Legislative Assembly of Ontario. This legislation increased the number of Ontario electoral districts from 107 to 122.

In December 2016, Bill 45, the Election Statute Law Amendment Act, 2016, was passed by the Legislative Assembly of Ontario. This legislation established a Far North Electoral Boundaries Commission with a mandate to review the electoral district boundaries of Kenora—Rainy River and Timmins—James Bay and make recommendations about the creation of one or two more electoral districts in that geographic area.

Ontario’s new electoral district boundaries will be in effect for the next general election which is expected to take place on June 7, 2018—the first Thursday in June, as specified by the Election Statute Law Amendment Act, 2016.
