New Electoral Boundaries in Place for the 41st Provincial General Election
In the fall of 2019, the House of Assembly legislated 55 electoral district boundaries as recommended by the Electoral Boundaries Commission. These new district boundaries will be used for the 41st provincial general election in Nova Scotia when it is called.
Information on the new 55 electoral boundaries including maps is available on the Elections Nova Scotia website at electionsnovascotia.ca.
When new electoral boundaries are enacted, Elections Nova Scotia prepares a report to illustrate the transposition of votes from the previous provincial general election based on the new electoral boundaries. A report illustrating how the votes from the 2017 provincial general election fit with the new 2019 electoral boundaries is also available on the Elections Nova Scotia website.
Nova Scotia is the only province in Canada without a fixed election date. Given that the 40th provincial general election was held on May 30, 2017, the spring of 2022 is the latest possible time the 41st provincial general election could occur.
