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 2015the Representation Act, 2015, was enacted by the Legislative Assembly of Ontario. It will increase the number of Ontario electoral districts from 107 to 122 for the upcoming general election.

In December 2016, the Representation Act, 2015 was amended and established the Far North Electoral Boundaries Commission. Its mandate is 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. For the upcoming general election, this will increase the number of electoral districts from 107 to 123 or 124.
