Rimbey-Rocky Mountain House-Sundre is a provincial electoral district in central Alberta, Canada. The district was created in the 2010 boundary redistribution and is mandated to return a single member to the Legislative Assembly of Alberta using the first past the post voting system.

History[edit]

The electoral district was created in the 2010 Alberta boundary re-distribution. It was created from the old electoral district of Rocky Mountain House which was expanded to include the town of Rimbey, Alberta which was previously in Lacombe-Ponoka. The riding also gained some land west of Sylvan Lake[1]
