This central riding covers more than 12,000 square kilometres and includes the communities of Pembroke, Deep River, Renfrew, Petawawa, Chalk River and Arnprior.

CFB Petawawa, Atomic Energy Canada and Petawawa National Forestry Institute are also encompassed by the riding.

As a result of the 1999 redistribution, the new riding of Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke combined a third of Lanark-Renfrew with the whole of Renfrew North.

Political History:

In the former Renfrew South, Liberal Thomas P. Murray won in 1929, 1934, 1937 and 1943.

In Renfrew North, Tory S.J. Hunt won in 1943, 1945, 1948, 1951 and 1955, after which he resigned to run federally. PC candidate Maurice Hamilton won the 1958 byelection and went on to win again in 1959, 1963, 1967 and 1971. Tory dominance was finally broken by Thomas Murray's grandson, Sean Conway, who won the seat for the Liberals in every election from 1975 to 1999.

In the old riding of Lanark, Conservative Doug Wiseman won in 1971, 1975, 1977, 1981 and 1985. Wiseman was re-elected in the former riding of Lanark-Renfrew in 1987, but the seat went to Tory Leo Jordan in 1990 and 1995..
