This riding runs from Lake Ontario in the north to the city limits of St. Catharines in the west and east.

Manufacturing is a major industry here, with General Motors being the largest employer in area.

In the 1999 redistribution, the new riding of St Catharines combined 11 per cent of Lincoln and 46 per cent of St. Catharines-Brock with all of the existing St. Catharines riding.

Political History:

In the former riding of St. Catharines, Tory Robert Johnson defeated Liberal Jim Bradley in 1967 and 1971 and Liberal J.A. "Rocky" Rochefort in 1975. Bradley returned to win here in 1977, and has been victorious in every election since.

In the former riding of Brock, Tory Bob Welch held the former riding of Brock from 1975 to 1985( prior to that, he had represented the nearby Lincoln riding since 1963). He was succeeded by Conservative Peter Partington in 1985.

Partington was defeated in the old riding of St. Catharines-Brock by Liberal Mike Dietsch in 1987. NDP candidate Christel Haeck won the seat in 1990, but lost it in 1995 to Tory Tom Froese.
