This northern riding has Lake Nipissing in its northwest corner, and part of Algonquin Park in the south. The Quebec border marks its northeast boundary. It includes North Bay, where the majority of the population lives, as well as Sturgeon Falls, Mattawa and the Nipissing Indian Reserve.

About 16 per cent of residents list French as their mother tongue.

As a result of the 1999 redistribution, Nipissing combined the bulk of the old Nipissing riding with more than one third of Parry Sound.

Political History:

Liberal Dick Smith won three elections consecutive elections here starting in 1965, and was followed by fellow Liberal Mike Bolan in 1977.

Bolan fell to PC candidate Mike Harris in 1981. Harris held the riding for more than 20 years, and served as premier from 1995 until his retirement in 2002.
