The Electoral Boundaries Readjustment Act creates an independent non-partisan process for the review and, if necessary, revision of the federal electoral map following the most recent decennial census.
The legislation mandates that each electoral district shall, as close as reasonably possible, correspond to the Provincial Electoral Quota (“the Quota”). The Quota is the total population divided by the number of districts. In addition, the Commission is obliged to also consider communities of interest or communities of identity in, and the historical pattern of, electoral districts, and a manageable geographic size for districts in sparsely populated, rural or northern regions of the province.
The Electoral Boundaries Readjustment Act requires that parties wishing to make representations to the Commission give notice in writing to the Secretary of the Commission.
A Public Hearing Participation Form is available at redistribution2022.ca to be completed by those who wish to make oral representations. Form submission deadline is September 25, 2022.
