Riding profile

riding map

This riding west of Toronto has a large population that is growing by leaps and bounds. While there are pockets of industry attached to Milton, Acton and Georgetown, many residents commute to jobs in and around Toronto.The riding contains Halton Hills in the northeast and Milton in northwest. In the southwest it includes part of Burlington and in the southeast it incorporates part of Oakville. It also includes Georgetown to the east and stretches south over the Niagara Escarpment.

The post-1999 riding boundaries added 33 per cent of the old Halton Centre riding to the whole of Halton North.

Political history

Progressive Conservative Ted Chudleigh was re-elected in Halton in 2011, by a margin of more than 3,000 votes.

That was a more comfortable victory for Chudleigh than in 2007, when he squeaked out a 176-vote win over Liberal Gary Zemlak in 2007. He won in 2003 by a 5,593-vote margin and in 1999 crushed Liberal Mohan Anand by 20,738 votes.

In the old district of Halton North, all three parties were historically well-represented: in 1987, Liberal Walt Elliot won the seat, in 1990 it was the NDP's Noel Duignan and in 1995 Chudleigh emerged as the victor.
