Additional Changes in Cambridge

In August, the Commission published its proposal for a new electoral map, for discussion at hearings this fall. Public feedback has led the Commission to consider significant changes to the electoral districts of Perth—Wellington, Kitchener—Conestoga, Wellington—Halton Hills, Brant, and the proposed electoral district of Kitchener South—North Dumfries—Brant.

  • In the Commission's original proposal, the electoral district of Perth—Wellington was to remain unchanged. The Commission is now proposing to remove the townships of Mapleton and Wellington North and the Town of Minto from Perth—Wellington and to add them to the electoral district of Wellington—Halton Hills. In addition, the Commission is now proposing to remove the townships of Wellesley and Wilmot from the electoral district of Kitchener—Conestoga and to add them to the electoral district of Perth—Wellington, which the Commission proposes to rename Perth—Wellesley—Wilmot.
  • The Commission is now proposing to remove the Township of Woolwich from the electoral district of Kitchener—Conestoga and to add it to the electoral district of Wellington—Halton Hills, with the result that the originally proposed electoral district of Kitchener—Conestoga would be eliminated.
  • In the Commission's original proposal, the electoral district of Wellington—Halton Hills was to remain unchanged. The Commission is now proposing to add the townships of Wellington North, Mapleton and Woolwich and the Town of Minto to the electoral district, and to remove the Town of Halton Hills. The electoral district would be renamed Wellington—Woolwich.
  • The electoral district of Kitchener South—North Dumfries—Brant was a new electoral district in the Commission's proposal. The proposed electoral district included a substantial portion of the City of Brant, including the communities of Paris and St. George. The Commission is now proposing a revision: the electoral district would include only the northerly portion of the City of Brant lying north of Paris Plains Church Road, Scenic Drive and Howell Road.
  • The Commission is now proposing a much larger electoral district of Brant to include the City of Brantford and most of the City of Brant. In addition to the small portion of the city being assigned to the electoral district of Kitchener South—North Dumfries, a small portion in the southwest side of the city, lying west of Middletownline Road, would be assigned to the electoral district of Oxford. As well a small portion of the city, lying north of Madden Side Road, Langford Church Road and Baptist Church Road would be assigned to the proposed electoral district of Ancaster—Flamborough—Glanbrook.

Additional Changes in Hamilton

Public feedback has led the Commission to consider significant changes to the proposed electoral districts of Waterdown—Glanbrook, Ancaster, Hamilton Centre, Hamilton Mountain and Hamilton East—Stoney Creek.

At the October public hearings, the Commission received helpful suggestions for reconfiguring the five electoral districts in the Hamilton area. As a result of those suggestions, the Commission is now proposing the following five electoral districts:

  • Ancaster—Flamborough—Glanbrook. This would be a primarily rural electoral district surrounding the urban area of the City of Hamilton. It would include the rural community of Ancaster and would be situated above the Niagara Escarpment. The urban areas south of Rymal Road would be included with urban electoral districts.
  • Hamilton West—Dundas. It would be comprised of the former Township of Dundas and that part of the City of Hamilton lying north of the Niagara Escarpment and west of Wentworth Street.
  • Hamilton East. It would be comprised of that part of the City of Hamilton lying east of Wentworth Street, north of the Niagara Escarpment, and west of Grays Road to Highway 8 and west of Centennial Parkway South to the Niagara Escarpment.
  • Hamilton Mountain West. It would be comprised of that part of the City of Hamilton lying south of the Niagara Escarpment, east of the hydroelectric transmission line, north of the hydroelectric transmission line and Twenty Road East to Miles Road and north of the hydroelectric transmission line to Upper Gage Avenue, and west of Upper Gage Avenue to the Lincoln Alexander Parkway and west of Upper Sherman Avenue to the Niagara Escarpment.
  • Stoney Creek—Mountain East. It would be comprised of that part of the City of Hamilton lying east of Grays Road to Highway 8, east of the Centennial Parkway South to the Niagara Escarpment, east of Upper Sherman Avenue to the Lincoln Alexander Parkway, and east of Upper Gage Avenue to the hydroelectric transmission line, north of the hydroelectric transmission line to the east boundary of the City of Hamilton, and west of the east boundary of the City of Hamilton.

Additional Changes in Oakville

In August, the Commission published its proposal for a new electoral map, for discussion at hearings this fall. Prior to the proposal, the Halton region had three electoral districts. Public feedback has led the Commission to consider significant changes to the proposed electoral districts of Oakville, Burlington, Halton and Milton. As a result of public hearings conducted in Cambridge and Niagara Falls, the Commission was persuaded that a new electoral district proposed for the Cambridge area would be a better fit in the Halton region. The Commission was also persuaded that the Town of Halton Hills should be removed from the electoral district of Wellington—Halton Hills and included in a new electoral district to be created in the Halton region. The Commission is therefore now proposing that the Halton region have five electoral districts.

  • The electoral district of Oakville would remain unchanged from the Commission's original proposal.
  • The electoral district of Burlington would be revised slightly. It would be comprised of the current boundaries of the electoral district, less that portion lying north of the hydroelectric transmission line, east of Brant Street, south of Dundas Street and west of Guelph Line.
  • The Commission is now proposing an electoral district to be named Oakville North—Burlington. It would be comprised of the balance of the Town of Oakville lying north of Upper Middle Road, and that part of the City of Burlington lying north of the Queen Elizabeth Way, east of Walkers Line to Upper Middle Road, east of Appleby Line to Dundas Street, and south of Dundas Street to the municipal boundary of the City of Burlington.
  • The Commission is proposing a new electoral district to be named Burlington North—Milton South. It would be comprised of the balance of the City of Burlington not included in the electoral districts of Burlington and Oakville North—Burlington, plus that part of the Town of Milton lying south of Derry Road to Tremaine Road, north to Steeles Avenue, east to the railway line, south of the railway line to Derry Road, east on Derry Road to Cedar Hedge Road, then north to the southern boundary of the Town of Halton Hills, and east along that boundary to the municipal boundary of the Town of Milton.
  • The Commission is now proposing a new electoral district to be named Halton Hills—Milton. It would be comprised of the balance of the Town of Milton not included in the electoral district of Burlington North—Milton South, plus the Town of Halton Hills.
