Cumberland is a provincial electoral district for the Legislative Assembly of Saskatchewan, Canada. It was created for the 1912 election, and was abolished into Prince Albert East-Cumberland in 1967. It was re-created for the 1975 election. It is the largest electoral district in the province, and at the 2007 general election was the safest for the New Democratic Party.

History[edit]

The riding has a strong history of electing New Democrat MLAs, and that region has returned NDP MLAs since 1952. The closest that the NDP came to losing the riding was in the 2008 by-election, which was narrowly won with 49.73% of the popular vote and a majority of 164.
