Riding profile

riding map

The riding of Pontiac, in Outaouais region north of Ottawa, stretches from the former city of Aylmer (now Gatineau) into the vast forests of north-central Québec. Outside the suburban pocket of Aylmer, which is home to many federal public servants, the big industries are farming and logging.

The riding first existed for the 1854 election. It changed little in 2011, losing a segment in central Gatineau.
