History[edit]

The electoral district was created in 2003 from Surrey Central and some of Surrey North riding.

The 2012 federal electoral boundaries redistribution concluded that the electoral boundaries of Fleetwood—Port Kells should be adjusted, and a modified electoral district of the same name will be contested in future elections.[3] The redefined Fleetwood—Port Kells gains very small areas from the current ridings of Surrey North and South Surrey—White Rock—Cloverdale while losing significant portions of its current territory to the new districts of Cloverdale—Langley City, South Surrey—White Rock and Surrey—Newton. These new boundaries were legally defined in the 2013 representation order, which came into effect upon the call of the 42nd Canadian federal election, scheduled for October 2015.[4]
