Welcome to the website of the 2012 Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission for Saskatchewan.
The redistribution of federal electoral districts sets up the geographic areas where Canadians vote to elect their member of Parliament. This redistribution takes place every 10 years, after the census. Commissions in each of the provinces look at the demographic changes since the last redistribution and propose a new set of electoral boundaries with the aim of better representing people and communities in Parliament.
As Chair of the Saskatchewan Commission, I am dedicated to ensuring that the new electoral boundaries are fair to the people of our province, in terms of equality, regional representation, and other factors that create a community of interest or identity.
To ensure that we have the best understanding of these issues, I and the two other commission members, Dr. John Courtney and Mr. David Marit, held a series of public hearings across the province in September and October. In light of the feedback received from the public, the commission is now reviewing its initial proposal and preparing its report to be studied by a parliamentary committee. We would like to thank those who participated.
Justice Ron Mills
