Prince Albert Carlton is a provincial electoral district for the Legislative Assembly of Saskatchewan, Canada.

The riding was last contested in the 2016 general election, when it returned Saskatchewan Party MLA Joe Hargrave.

One of two provincial constituencies for the city of Prince Albert, the riding's northern boundary follows 15th Street (Hwy. 302) from east to west; then curves south along 9th/10th Avenue West to 28th Street, which the boundary follows westward until the city limits.

The riding was created in 1991 out of Prince Albert and Prince Albert-Duck Lake.

History[edit]

Since being created, the riding has returned members of the New Democratic and Saskatchewan Parties. The initial New Democratic Party MLA, Myron Kowalsky, was elected in every general election between 1991 and 2007, before losing his seat to Saskatchewan Party challenger Darryl Hickie by a thin majority of 62 votes.[1]

Since the 2007 general election, the riding has returned exclusively Saskatchewan Party members, and with large majorities starting in 2011.
