Some changes have been made to elections in Canada since the last federal election in 2011. Thirty new seats have been added to the House of Commons since 2011. The new seats are in Ontario (15), Quebec (3), Alberta (6), and British Columbia (6) and were added to better reflect the growth of Canada’s population. These changes mean you might be voting in a different riding than you did in 2011. Note, too, that with these changes your practice might now be in a different riding than the one in which you are registered to vote. Click here to find your electoral district for 2015.
