Federal electoral districts redistribution 2022

A New Federal Electoral Map is Taking Shape for Manitoba

Winnipeg, Thursday, June 16, 2022 – The Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission for Manitoba has proposed a new electoral map for consideration at public hearings this September. This map introduces changes to Manitoba's federal electoral district boundaries and has been developed through an independent and non-partisan process.

"The Manitoba commission is pleased to present our proposal to the public. We welcome input into this important democratic process and invite everyone to provide written and oral submissions. We look forward to receiving everyone's perspectives at our public hearings." said the Honourable Justice Diana M. Cameron, Chair of the three-member commission. Kelly Saunders and Paul G. Thomas are the other members of the Commission who are responsible for the readjustment of the province's federal electoral boundaries.

The proposal reflects Manitoba's increase in population from 1,208,268 in 2011 to 1,342,153, 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 June 25, 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 Manitoba, the quota for each electoral district is 95,868 (1,342,153 residents divided by 14 electoral districts).

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