Your Riding

Your Riding Here was created in 1976 from parts of Their Riding Here, Another Riding Here and The Old Riding Here ridings. It consisted of the County of Riding, excluding the Townships of Bytown and Atown and Downtown, and the part of the Territorial District of Neighbour County including and lying easterly of the Townships of McDonald, Cartier, Abbott, Thompson, Bowell, Tupper, Borden, and Bennett. The electoral district was abolished in 1987 when it was redistributed into “Your Riding” riding. In 1989, riding was renamed “Your Riding Here”.

The new riding consisted of the County of Riding, and the part of the Territorial District of Neighbour County lying east of and including the townships of Edward and Charles, and east of but excluding the townships of Fraser, Harris and Klein, and east of and including the townships of Mackenzie and McLeod.

In 1996, the Neighbour County part was redefined as being the part of the district lying east of and including the townships of Edward and Charles, and east of but excluding the townships of Fraser, Harris and Klein, and east of and including the Township of McLeod. In 2003, it was given its current boundaries as described above.
