History[edit]

The electoral district was created in 2003. 71.7% of the population of the riding came from Algoma—Manitoulin, and 28.3% from Timmins—James Bay.

Algoma was created in the British North America Act and consisted of the Provisional Judicial District of Algoma District. In 1882, the district consisted of the area between the Provisional Thunder Bay District and the Province of Manitoba. In 1892, it consisted of all areas of Ontario west of the Nipissing electoral district, and also included Manitoulin Island and the islands around it. The district was abolished in 1903 when it was redistributed into Algoma East and Algoma West ridings.

A new Algoma district was created from Algoma East and Algoma West in 1966. It consisted of most of Algoma District except the extreme north and northwestern portions, and Sault Ste. Marie. It also included Manitoulin Island, nearby islands, and the southwestern corner of Sudbury. In 1976, the district was expanded to the north, and to include the suburbs of Sault Ste. Marie, Whitefish River Indian Reserve, and more of the southwestern part of Sudbury District.

In 1987, it was expanded to include part of the city of Sault Ste. Marie, the part of Rankin Indian Reserve within city limits, more of western Sudbury District, all of Manitoulin District, and much of southcentral Sudbury District. There were also some boundary changes in the north part of the Algoma district.

In 1996, the district consisted of all of Algoma District except Sault Ste. Marie, the northwestern corner and the southwestern corner of Sudbury District, Manitoulin District, and the southeastern corner of Thunder Bay District.

In 1997, the name of the district was changed to Algoma—Manitoulin.

Most of the riding was redistributed in 2003 into Algoma—Manitoulin—Kapuskasing, with small parts going to Nickel Belt and Sault Ste. Marie ridings.
