Edmonton East (formerly known as Edmonton Centre-East) is a federal electoral district in Alberta, Canada, that has been represented in the House of Commons of Canada since 1917.

The district includes a portion of the city of Edmonton.

Geography[edit]

The district is an urban riding in the City of Edmonton.

History[edit]

This riding was originally created in 1914 as "Edmonton East" from Edmonton and Victoria ridings. At the time of its creation, this district included a massive, sparsely-populated rural area. Most of this area was removed due to the creation of Athabaska in 1924, and although it gained some back Pembina riding was abolished in 1987, it is now an urban riding.

As Edmonton's population has grown, Edmonton East has also lost urban areas to new ridings. Edmonton East lost area due to creation of Edmonton—Strathcona (1952), Edmonton Centre (1966), Edmonton North (1976), and Edmonton Northwest (1987). It gained area to due the (temporary) abolition of Edmonton Centre in 1979.

In 2000, it was renamed "Edmonton Centre-East". In 2003 Edmonton Centre-East was abolished and redistributed into a re-created Edmonton Centre, a new Edmonton East riding, and Edmonton—Sherwood Park.

The new "Edmonton East" riding was created from parts of Edmonton Centre-East and Edmonton North.
