Riding profile

riding map

This northern riding is the fourth largest in Ontario, but home to one of the province's smallest populations.

Aside from a large part of Thunder Bay, this riding also includes Nipigon, Longlac and Marathon, as well as many native reserves. It has the fourth largest aboriginal population of any provincial riding.

The 1999 redistribution created Thunder Bay-Superior North from 73 per cent of the old Lake Nipigon riding and 84 per cent of Port Arthur.

Population: 80,702 (2011 census; a decrease of 2.3% from 2006) 

Political history

The riding was once again won by Liberal Michael Gravelle in 2011 when he beat New Democrat Steve Mantis by 2,654 votes.

Gravelle won by 2,435 votes over New Democrat Jim Foulds in the 2007 election. 

He won the new Thunder Bay-Superior North riding in 1999 and 2003 by more than 13,000 and 17,000 votes, respectively.
