History[edit]

This riding was created in 1996 from Calgary North and Wild Rose ridings.

In 2003, parts of this electoral district were transferred to Calgary Centre-North riding.

In the 2012 federal electoral boundaries redistribution Calgary—Nose Hill lost the emdash in its name. It also lost all of its territory north of Stoney Trail and west of Sarcee Trail and John Laurie Blvd to the new riding of Calgary Rocky Ridge, while gaining back the area north of a line following John Laurie Blvd to McKnight Blvd from Calgary Centre-North.[4] This was legally defined in the 2013 representation order and came into effect upon the call of the October 19, 2015 42nd Canadian federal election.[5]
