The 2018 Manitoba Electoral Divisions Boundaries Commission has released its final report establishing the boundaries of the electoral divisions. The Commission is non-partisan and independent of government. As a result of its review, the Commission has changed 56 of the 57 electoral division boundaries and 14 of the 57 of electoral division names.
Before making its final determinations, the Commission consulted extensively with the citizens of Manitoba and invited them to provide their views with respect to any changes to the boundaries. In addition, 13 public hearings were held throughout the province. Over 200 submissions were received.
As per The Electoral Divisions Act, the new boundaries will be in effect for the next provincial general election, to be held October 6, 2020, unless a general election is called sooner. Should a byelection occur before then, the existing (2008) boundaries would be in effect.
The report has been posted to the Commission website and printed copies are also available by contacting the Commission.
