Hastings—Frontenac (also known as Hastings—Frontenac—Lennox and Addington) was a federal electoral district in Ontario, Canada, that was represented in the Canadian House of Commons from 1953 to 1968, and from 1979 to 2004.

Constituency boundaries[edit]

This riding was originally created in 1952 from parts of Frontenac—Addington and Hastings—Peterborough ridings.

It consisted of:

(a) the county of Lennox and Addington (excluding the townships of Ernestown, Fredericksburg North and Fredericksburg South, Richmond, Adolphustown, and Amherst Island);

(c) the part of county of Peterborough lying east of and including the townships of Anstruther, Burleigh, Dummer and Asphodel; and

(d) the part of county of Hastings lying north of and including the townships of Rawdon, Huntingdon, Madoc and Elzevir.

The electoral district was abolished in 1966 when it was redistributed between Frontenac—Lennox and Addington, Hastings, Peterborough and Victoria—Haliburton ridings.

Hastings—Frontenac was re-created in 1976 from parts of Frontenac—Lennox and Addington, Hastings, and Victoria—Haliburton ridings.

The new riding consisted of:

(b) the part of the County of Hastings including and lying north of the Townships of Marmora, Madoc and Elzevir; and

The electoral district changed name in 1981 to Hastings—Frontenac—Lennox and Addington.

In 1987, it was redefined to consist of:

(b) the County of Lennox and Addington but excluding the Township of Armherst Island;

(c) that part of the County of Hastings lying north of and including the townships of Hungerford, Huntingdon and Rawdon and the Village of Stirling.

In 1996, it was redefined to include the Township of Armherst Island in the County of Lennox and Addington. The County of Frontenac portion of the riding was redefined as being the county, excluding the City of Kingston, the townships of Howe Island, Kingston and Wolfe Island, and the part of the Township of Pittsburgh lying south of the Macdonald-Cartier Freeway (Highway No. 401).

The electoral district was abolished in 2003 when it was redistributed between Kingston and the Islands, Lanark—Frontenac—Lennox and Addington and Prince Edward—Hastings ridings.
