Manitoba Electoral Divisions Boundaries Changes Proposed
Starting on September 10, the Manitoba Electoral Divisions Boundaries Commission begins public hearings regarding proposed changes to all 57 existing electoral divisions in the province. The hearings will be held from September 10 to September 20 in 11 cities.
The Commission is inviting feedback from the public concerning the proposed electoral division boundaries and names. Sixteen new names have been proposed by the Commission, including six inside of and 10 outside of Winnipeg. The proposed electoral division boundaries and names, along with their respective populations, are available to view on the Commission’s website.
The last review of the province’s electoral divisions boundaries was in 2008. After the hearings, the Commission’s final report is expected to become law and go into effect before the next provincial general election in October 2020.
