This riding includes all of the former city of Vanier and has a large Francophone population, with 33 per cent listing French as their mother tongue in the 1996 census.

The riding extends out from the Vanier city limits to Nicholas Street and the Queensway in the northeast, and encompasses part of the affluent Rockcliffe Park in the northwest. It also stretches into part of the former city of Gloucester to the east, and to the Ottawa city limits in the south.

The University of Ottawa is located within this riding, which may account for the high rate of mobility: 54 per cent of residents here moved between 1991 and 1996.

As a result of the 1999 redistribution, the new riding of Ottawa-Vanier combined 33 per cent of Carleton East and virtually all of Ottawa East.

Political History:

Tory Jules Morin was elected in Ottawa-Vanier in 1955, 1959 and 1967, but lost in 1963. He would be the last Tory elected in this riding.

Liberal Albert Roy won in 1971, 1975, 1977 and 1981, then resigned for an unsuccessful federal run. In a 1984 byelection, Liberal Bernard Grandmaitre defeated Tory Richard Boudreau. Grandmaitre was re-elected in the next four general elections, but stepped down prior to the 1999 vote.
