Federal electoral districts redistribution 2022

Terms and Conditions

The Constitution of Canada requires that the boundaries of federal electoral districts be reviewed after each decennial census to reflect changes and movements in Canada's population. The current federal redistribution process began in October 2021.

Ten independent commissions, one for each province, are responsible for drawing the boundaries in a non-partisan and impartial manner. The Electoral Boundaries Readjustment Act allows the Office of the Chief Electoral Officer to provide administrative support services to assist the 10 electoral boundaries commissions ("the commissions") in fulfilling their mandate under the Act. The section of the Office of the Chief Electoral Officer that operates under the name of Elections Canada provides, among other things, administrative support to the commissions in their communication efforts. As a result, this website is administered by Elections Canada on behalf of the commissions.


Elections Canada is not involved in the decisions made by the commissions regarding the electoral map, nor do we endorse any proposal made by the commissions or the comments and feedback from the public posted by the commissions.

Privacy notice

Elections Canada is committed to providing a website that respects the privacy of visitors. This privacy notice summarizes the privacy practices for our online activities. All personal information collected is governed by the Privacy Act. This means that you will be informed of the purpose for which your personal information is being collected and how to exercise your right to access that information.

Your privacy and the Internet

The nature of the Internet is such that web servers automatically collect certain information about a visit to a website, including the visitor's Internet Protocol (IP) address. IP addresses are unique numbers assigned by Internet service providers (ISPs) to all devices used to access the Internet. Web servers automatically log the IP addresses of visitors to their sites. The IP address, on its own, does not identify an individual. However, in certain circumstances, such as with the co-operation of an ISP, it could be used to identify an individual using the site. For this reason, we consider IP addresses to be personal information, particularly when combined with other data that is automatically collected when a visitor requests a web page; such data includes the page or pages visited and the date and time of the visit.

Unless otherwise noted, we do not automatically gather any specific personal information from you, such as your name, phone number or email address. We obtain this type of information only if you supply it, for example, by email or by filling in an online form.

If you choose to send an email or complete a form online, your personal information will be used in order to respond to your inquiry. It will not be used to create an individual profile. Any disclosure of your personal information is made in accordance with the Privacy Act.

Emails and other electronic methods used to communicate with Elections Canada or the commissions are not secure unless it is specifically stated on a web page. Therefore, we recommend that you do not send sensitive personal information, such as your social insurance number or your date of birth, through non-secure electronic means.

Personal information collected through communications with the public may be used for statistical, evaluation and reporting purposes and is included in Personal Information Bank PSU 914: Public Communications.

Web analytics

Web analytics is the collection, analysis, measurement and reporting of data about web traffic and visits for the purposes of understanding and optimizing web usage. When your device requests a redecoupage-redistribution-2022.ca web page, the following type of information is collected for web analytics:

  • the IP address of the device that has contacted the redecoupage-redistribution-2022.ca website (the IP address is not stored or retained in a format that can be used to identify the visitor)
  • the date and time of the visit
  • the type of operating system used
  • the type of browser used
  • the page(s) visited and documents downloaded

We may also use the personal information collected for non-administrative uses, such as for statistical purposes related to communications and information technology or for audits and evaluations, research, planning and reporting. This personal information is not used to make decisions about an individual or to profile individual visitors to redecoupage-redistribution-2022.ca.

We carry out web analytics using services from a third-party service provider, Adobe Systems Inc. (Adobe Analytics). This service provider is based in the United States of America, which means that the personal information collected is transmitted outside Canada and may be subject to US laws, including the USA Patriot Act. In addition, Adobe operates servers in other countries on which the web analytics data may be processed; consequently, the data may be subject to the governing legislation of that country. For Adobe Analytics, the Government of Canada has specified that personal information may be stored only on servers in Canada, the United States, the European Union, Australia, Israel, New Zealand, Norway and Switzerland.

You can learn more about Adobe's privacy policy on its website.

To track visits to redecoupage-redistribution-2022.ca for web analytics, Adobe Analytics requires the use of digital markers ("cookies"). You may opt out of having your visit tracked by:

  • changing your browser settings to refuse cookies
  • disabling JavaScript within your browser, or
  • downloading an opt-out cookie from Adobe


Elections Canada uses software programs to monitor network traffic in order to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information or to otherwise cause damage. This software receives and records the IP address of devices that contact the redecoupage-redistribution-2022.ca website, the date and time of the visit and the pages visited. We make no attempt to link these addresses with the identity of individuals visiting the website, unless an attempt to damage the site has been detected.

This information is collected under the authority of section 161 of the Financial Administration Act. It may be shared with appropriate law enforcement authorities if suspected criminal activities are detected. Such information may be used for statistical purposes related to network security or for audits, evaluations, research, planning and reporting, and is included in Personal Information Bank PSU 905: Electronic Network Monitoring Logs.
