Maps for the 2018 General Election

Redistribution is a legislative process that redraws electoral district boundaries.

In December 2015, the 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 was 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 by August 1, 2017.

In its final report, submitted on August 1, 2017, the Commission recommended the creation of two additional electoral districts, named Kiiwetinoong and Mushkegowuk. On September 12, 2017, the government introduced a bill that, if enacted, would amend the Representation Act, 2015 and implement the Commission’s recommendations. If the bill is enacted, it will increase the number of electoral districts in Ontario from 107 to 124.
