Calgary-Lougheed is a provincial electoral district in Alberta, Canada. It is one of 87 districts mandated to return a single member to the Legislative Assembly of Alberta using the first-past-the-post method of voting.

The district is primarily urban, and it exists on the suburban fringes of the city of Calgary. It was created in the 1993 boundary redistribution from Calgary-Shaw.

The district has been a stronghold for Progressive Conservative candidates since it was created. The current representative is Jason Kenney of the United Conservative Party. The first MLA was Jim Dinning who previously represented Calgary-Shaw.

The district contains the neighbourhoods of Bridlewood, Evergreen, Woodbine and Woodlands.

History[edit]

The electoral district was created in the 1993 boundary redistribution from Calgary-Shaw and Highwood. In the 2010 Boundary redistribution all land east of 14 Street was cut out of the riding and given to Shaw and Calgary-Fish Creek.

The electoral district was created from Calgary-Shaw in the 1993 boundary redistribution. The first election held that year saw incumbent Progressive Conservative MLA Jim Dinning defeat Liberal candidate Jack Driscoll and three other candidates. Dinning retired from the legislature in 1997.

The 1997 election saw Progressive Conservative candidate Marlene Graham elected with a landslide majority. She was re-elected with a larger margin in the 2001 general election and retired at dissolution in 2004.

The 2004 election saw Progressive Conservative candidate Dave Rodney win a very large majority to hold the seat for his party. He won a second term in the 2008 general election.
