Our District

SGI_map-251x300.gifThe Saanich Gulf Islands Electoral District covers approximately 504 square kilometers with a population of 115,724 (based on 2006 census data).  The number of registered voters on the final lists during the last election was 93,380 making Saanich-Gulf Islands one of the largest Electoral Districts in Canada. 

Federal electoral district boundaries were last revised following the release of the 2011 Census population numbers, which had led to an increase in the number of House of Commons seats from 308 to 338. The representation order that confirmed the new boundaries was made official on October 5, 2013. It will be in effect for a federal general election called any time after May 1, 2014.
