Fraser-Nicola is a provincial electoral district in British Columbia, Canada established by the Electoral Districts Act, 2008. It came into effect upon the dissolution of the BC Legislature in April 2009, and was first contested in the ensuing election.

Member of Legislative Assembly[edit]

Because of the realignment of electoral boundaries, most incumbents did not represent the entirety of their listed district during the preceding legislative term. Harry Lali (NDP), first elected in the 2005 election to the Yale-Lillooet riding, became the district's first MLA. He was defeated by Jackie Tegart in the 2013 election.
