Proposed Redistribution of Electoral Districts[edit]

There is a proposal to change the electoral districts.[3] If the proposal is adopted, the southern Burnhamthorpe boundary would change to Eglinton. This would mean that Rockwood Village would move from Mississauga—Brampton South to the Mississauga East—Cooksville Riding.
