The Far North Electoral Boundaries Commission will hold two rounds of consultations across the electoral districts of Kenora—Rainy River and Timmins—James Bay to gather input on the creation of at least one and no more than two additional electoral districts.

After the first round of consultations, the Commission will release a preliminary report. The Commission will then consult on the preliminary report, before submitting a final report with recommendations about the creation of one or two new electoral districts in northern Ontario to the Attorney General of Ontario by August 1, 2017. The Attorney General will then make the report public.

The government must introduce legislation to implement the commission’s final recommendations before October 30, 2017.
