Kitchener—Waterloo was a federal electoral district in Ontario, Canada, that was represented in the House of Commons of Canada from 1997 to 2015.

Geography[edit]

The district consisted of the City of Waterloo and the northern part of the City of Kitchener.

History[edit]

The electoral district was created in 1996 from part of Waterloo riding.

It consisted initially of the City of Waterloo and the part of the City of Kitchener lying north of a line drawn from west to east along Highland Road West, Lawrence Avenue and Victoria Street.

In 2003, the Kitchener part of the riding was redefined to be the part of the city lying north of a line drawn from west to east along Highland Road West, Fischer Hallman Road and the Canadian National Railway situated north of Shadeland Crescent.

Following the 2011 Census and a Canadian Parliament decision to increase the number of Federal electoral districts from 308 to 338, Elections Canada conducted a redistribution exercise beginning in 2012 that was concluded on October 1, 2013. As a result of the redistribution exercise, the Kitchener-Waterloo district was abolished into Waterloo, Kitchener Centre and Kitchener—Conestoga districts .[2]
