Prince Edward—Hastings is a provincial electoral district in Ontario, Canada, that has been represented in the Legislative Assembly of Ontario since 1999. Its population in 2006 was 113,227.

History[edit]

The provincial electoral district was created in 1999 when provincial ridings were defined to have the same borders as federal ridings. It initially consisted of the County of Prince Edward, and the part of the County of Hastings lying south of and including the townships of Hungerford, Huntingdon and Rawdon, south of but excluding the Village of Stirling, and excluding the City of Trenton.

In 2003, it was redefined to consist of the County of Prince Edward and the County of Hastings (except the City of Quinte West).
