Proposed Federal Boundary Changes

The Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission for Nova Scotia has recently proposed changes that would exclude Enfield, Elmsdale, Lantz and Milford from Kings-Hants, and include them in the proposed riding of Pictou-Eastern Shore-Preston.

These proposed changes could impact future improvements to services and infrastructure in East Hants. Residents who are concerned about this proposed change can share feedback with the Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission by:
