New Brunswick Southwest (French: Nouveau-Brunswick-Sud-Ouest; formerly known as Charlotte and St. Croix—Belleisle) is a federal electoral district in New Brunswick, Canada, that has been represented in the House of Commons of Canada since 2004. Its population in 2006 was 63,232.

Geography[edit]

As the name implies, the district comprises the southwestern portion of New Brunswick. It includes all of Charlotte County and portions of York, Sunbury, Queens, Kings and Saint John Counties.

Major towns include St. Stephen, St. Andrews, St. George, Grand Bay–Westfield, McAdam, Harvey Station, Fredericton Junction, Gagetown, and the Kingsclear and Hanwell regions near Fredericton.

The neighbouring ridings are Tobique—Mactaquac, Fredericton, Fundy Royal, and Saint John.

History[edit]

"Charlotte" riding was created in 1867. In 1966, it was merged into Carleton—Charlotte.

"Charlotte" riding was re-created in 1996 primarily from Carleton—Charlotte, and incorporating parts of Fundy—Royal, Saint John, and Fredericton—York—Sunbury ridings. Shortly after the 1997 election, the riding became known as "New Brunswick Southwest".

The 2003 redistribution abolished New Brunswick Southwest. The territory of the riding was combined with the area around Belleisle Bay in south-central New Brunswick), and named "St. Croix—Belleisle". This riding was renamed "New Brunswick Southwest" in 2004.

The 2012 federal electoral redistribution will see this riding gain territory from Fredericton, and lose small portions to Fredericton and Fundy Royal.
