Final Report – New Brunswick

Foreword

The Report of the Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission for the Province of New Brunswick was initially completed following public consultations and submitted on December 6, 2012.

It was tabled in the House of Commons and referred to the Standing Committee on Procedure and House Affairs on January 28, 2013. Four objections to the report were filed with the Standing Committee.

In accordance with subsection 22(3) of the Electoral Boundaries Readjustment Act, the report of the Standing Committee, the objections, the minutes of proceedings and evidence of the Standing Committee, and the report of the Commission were referred back to the Commission for consideration of the matter of the objections.

The initial version of the report is included in this final report in its entirety.

The new section titled Addendum – Disposition of Objections provides the Commission's consideration and disposition of objections. In the result, the following changes are made:

  1. The parishes of North Lake and Canterbury and the villages of Canterbury and Meductic are returned to the electoral district of Tobique—Mactaquac.
  2. The communities of Moncton north of Highway 2 (Trans-Canada Highway) are returned to the electoral district of Moncton—Riverview—Dieppe.
  3. The proposed electoral district name of Tobique—Saint John River Valley is reverted to Tobique—Mactaquac.
  4. The current electoral district name of Miramichi is changed to Miramichi—Grand Lake.

These adjustments are reflected in the accompanying Amendments to the Schedule and Amended Maps sections.

In all other respects, the Commission's report of December 6, 2012, is unaltered.
