Current MLA: John MacDonnell (NDP)

District profile: The corridor between Enfield and Shubenacadie, north of Halifax airport, makes up a great deal of this district. The area has had the fastest growing population in the province and Mount Uniacke is a growing suburban community on its southern flank.

But a portion of this Hants County riding is rural and includes Upper Rawdon, Gore and the Noel Shore where agriculture, forestry and tourism are important. The population in these areas has declined in recent years.
