Peterborough is a federal electoral district in Ontario, Canada, that has been represented in the House of Commons of Canada since 1953. As of the next election, the riding will be known as Peterborough—Kawartha.[3]

The riding's borders have differed slightly since its creation in 1953, but has always included most or all of Peterborough County and its county seat of Peterborough, Ontario. Prior to 1952, the riding was split in two, sometimes partly joined to neighbouring Hastings County. Since the late 1990s, the riding boundaries and names of the provincial and federal electoral districts have been identical.

It now consists of the County of Peterborough, excluding the townships of North Kawartha, Galway-Cavendish and Harvey and Cavan-Millbrook-North Monaghan.

History[edit]

It was created in 1953 from Peterborough West riding. It consisted initially of the city of Peterborough and the townships of Galway, Cavendish, Harvey, Ennismore, Smith, Douro, Otonabee, and North Monaghan. In 1966, the townships of Galway, Cavendish and Harvey were removed from the riding, and the townships of Belmont and Methuen, Dummer, Smith and Asphodel (excluding the Village of Hastings) were added.

In 1976, it was redefined to consist of the part of the County of Peterborough lying south of the Townships of Burleigh and Anstruther, Chandos and Harvey, but excluding the Township of Cavan and the Village of Hastings. In 1987, the Village of Millbrook was excluded, and the Village of Hastings was added to the riding.

In 2003, it was given its current boundaries as described above.

The riding is a noted bellwether; it has been won by a member of the governing party of the day in all but four elections since its creation.
