History[edit]

The riding was created in 1966 from Kingston and parts of Hastings—Frontenac—Lennox and Addington and Prince Edward—Lennox.

In 1966, it was defined to consist of the City of Kingston, the Townships of Howe Island, Kingston and Wolfe Island, and the southwest part of the Township of Pittsburg, in the County of Frontenac; and the Township of Armherst Island in the County of Lennox and Addington.

In 1996, the Township of Pittsburgh portion of the riding was redefined to consist of the part of the township lying to the south of Highway 401.

In 2003, it was redefined to consist of the Township of Frontenac Islands and the City of Kingston in the County of Frontenac.

In 2013, the riding's borders were adjusted to remove the area north of Highway 401 from the riding, which will become part of the new district of Lanark—Frontenac. These new borders will take effect in the next federal election, expected to occur in 2015.
