Fort McMurray-Conklin is a provincial electoral district in northern 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.

History[edit]

The electoral district was created in the 2010 Alberta boundary re-distribution. It was created from the electoral district of Fort McMurray-Wood Buffalo which was split in half to accommodate population growth which has occurred in the region over the past decade due to exploitation and development of the oil sands.[1]

Prior to the district being split the antecedent electoral districts had returned Progressive Conservative MLAs with large majorities but a low turn out of votes. The city of Fort McMurray itself was represented by a Liberal MLA until 1997. Incumbent Guy Boutilier faced turmoil with Premier Ed Stelmach and had been removed from caucus to sit as an Independent while later joining the Wildrose Party.
