Calgary-North East (previously styled Calgary North East) is a provincial electoral district in Calgary, Alberta. The riding has existed twice, having been contested in the 1959 and abolished soon after, becoming Calgary East. It has been re-established in time for the next general election.
The historic 1959 redistribution of the provincial ridings of Calgary and Edmonton marked the transition back to First Past the Post. From 1921 to 1959 Calgary and Edmonton, along with a few other ridings in the province elected members with Single Transferable Vote. The redistribution created seven ridings in Calgary, two of those still exist today.
This transition was done in part to standardize the electoral system across the province and because Calgary and Edmonton were becoming too large to be a single riding. The other six ridings were Calgary Bowness, Calgary West, Calgary Glenmore, Calgary Centre, Calgary South East, Calgary North.
However, the riding was abolished after only one term, becoming Calgary-East. It has been re-established by the 2017 Electoral Boundaries Commission, created from parts of Calgary-Mackay-Nose Hill and Calgary-McCall, and will be contested in the next Alberta general election.
