History[edit]

The district was created in 1952 as "Glengarry—Prescott" from parts of Glengarry and Prescott ridings. It consisted of Prescott County and Glengarry County.

In 1966, it was expanded to include Russell County excluding Cumberland Township. In 1970, the name was changed to "Glengarry—Prescott—Russell".

In 1976, the district was redefined to exclude Charlottenburgh Township and include Cumberland Township.

In 1987, it was redefined to consist of the United Counties of Prescott and Russell, the County of Glengarry and Akwesasne Indian Reserve No. 59 in the United Counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry, and the part of the Township of Cumberland excluding the part north of Innes Road and west of Regional Road No. 57 and Trim Road.

In 1996, it was redefined to consist of the United Counties of Prescott and Russell, the County of Glengarry (excluding the Township of Charlottenburgh), the Township of Cumberland in the Regional Municipality of Ottawa-Carleton, excluding the part west of Trim Road and North of Innes Road.

In 2003, it was redefined to consist of the United Counties of Prescott and Russell, the Township of North Glengarry in the United Counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry, and the part of the City of Ottawa east Cardinal Creek, Regional Road No. 174, Trim Road Wall Road, Mer Bleue Road and Boundary Road.

Following the 2012 redistribution of Canada's ridings, the riding will lose the Cardinal Creek and Carlsbad Springs area to Ottawa—Orleans.
