Part II – Amendments to the Initial Report (March 12, 2013) – Newfoundland and Labrador – Summary

In accordance with subsection 23(1) of the Electoral Boundaries Readjustment Act, the Commission has considered and disposed of the objections. The result is a name change for one electoral district and an adjustment to part of the boundary between two other electoral districts. This boundary adjustment results in a decrease of 287 in the population of St. John's East and a corresponding increase in the population of St. John's South—Mount Pearl.

These population adjustments are reflected below in the final versions of Table 6 and Table 7. The name and boundary adjustments are reflected in the accompanying Schedule B amendments and maps.

In all other respects, the Commission's report of November 15, 2012 is unaltered.
