Chestermere-Rocky View is a provincial electoral district in Alberta, Canada. The district was created in the 2010 boundary redistribution and is mandated to return a single member to the Legislative Assembly of Alberta using the first past the post voting system.


The electoral district was created in the 2010 Alberta boundary re-distribution. It was created from large portions of the old electoral district of Airdrie-Chestermere and Foothills-Rocky View.[1] The district surrounds the western, northern and eastern boundaries of the city of Calgary.
