Riding Profile
 Riding Map

This eastern Ontario riding lies on the north shore of the St. Lawrence River up to the Quebec border. It contains the townships of South Glengarry, North Stormont, South Stormont, North Dundas and South Dundas.

The city of Cornwall accounts for about half of the riding population. The rest of the riding is largely rural and includes Winchester, Chesterville, Iroquois, Finch, Morrisburg and that part
of the Akwesasne Indian Reserve that is in Ontario.

Manufacturing is the main employer and the agriculture industry specializes in
dairy products. Average family income is $58,053 and unemployment is 6.2 per cent.

A large francophone population is concentrated in eastern parts of Cornwall. According to the 2001 census, over 20 per cent of the population have French as their mother tongue.

In 2004, a small part of Glengarry-Prescott-Russell has been added in the northeast and the name of the riding has been changed. The Stormont-Dundas riding was created in 1966 from Stormont and Grenville-Dundas ridings. In 1996, boundaries were changed slightly. The riding name was changed to Stormont-Dundas-Charlottenburgh in 1999.

Lucien Lamoureux was MP for Stormont, initially as a Liberal, beginning in 1962, became speaker in 1966 and ran as an Independent candidate in Stormont-Dundas and won in 1968 and 1972. He continued as speaker until 1974, when he was appointed ambassador to Belgium.

Stormont Dundas was held by Liberal Ed Lumley from 1974 to 1984. He was Minister of State for Trade, Minister of International Trade, Minister of Industry, Trade and Commerce and Minister of Regional Economic Expansion. In 1984, Conservative Norm Warner defeated Lumley.
