The Ottawa River forms the northern border of this affluent eastern Ontario riding. The suburban and rural area contains Ottawa's southwestern suburbs and the town of Mississippi Mills in Lanark County.
The riding is bordered on the northeast by March Valley Road, Eagleson Road and Riddell Road, on the southeast by McCordick Road and on the southwest by Ashton Station Road.
This riding was created in 2007 using 58 per cent of Lanark-Carleton and 18 per cent of Nepean-Carleton.
Population: 149,769 (2011 census; an increase of 16.2% since 2006)
Jack MacLaren, known for libertarian views, won the riding in 2011 after scoring a surprise upset in the PC nomination process, when he beat centrist Norm Sterling, who had held nine cabinet posts during a 34-year political career.
Sterling served as an MPP from 1977 to 2011. In the 2007 election, he scored a convincing victory, beating the Liberal candidate by an 8,350-vote margin.
Lanark-Carleton has been traditionally Tory and voters continued the trend in 1999 and 2003, electing Sterling by decisive margins in both years. In 2003, he beat Liberal Marianne Wilkinson by more than 6,000 votes.
