Prince Albert is a federal electoral district in Saskatchewan, Canada, that has been represented in the House of Commons of Canada from 1908 to 1988, and since 1997.

Geography[edit]

This riding is found in the central part of the province, in the transitional area between the Aspen parkland and boreal forest biomes. The major centre of the riding, and its namesake, is the city of Prince Albert which has a rich political history that includes representation by three former Prime Ministers (Sir Wilfrid Laurier in 1896, William Lyon Mackenzie King from 1926 to 1945, and John Diefenbaker from 1953 to 1979). Smaller centres in the riding include Nipawin, Melfort, and Tisdale.

History[edit]

The electoral district was first created in 1907 from portions of Humboldt, Mackenzie, and Saskatchewan. It existed in this form until 1987 when it was abolished into Prince Albert—Churchill River, Saskatoon—Humboldt, and The Battlefords—Meadow Lake. It was re-created in 1996 from portions of the Prince Albert—Churchill River, Mackenzie, and Saskatoon—Humboldt ridings.
