This northern urban riding relies on mining for the bulk of its employment, with companies such as Inco and Falconbridge Nickel Company headquartered here.

It consists of that part of city of Sudbury lying north of Highway 69, Long Lake Road and the northern boundary of Township of Broder.

According to the 1996 census, 23 per cent of residents list French as their mother tongue.

In the 1999 redistribution, the new riding of Sudbury combined 25 per cent of Sudbury East with the old Sudbury riding.

Political History:

In the old Sudbury riding, Liberal Elmer Sopha won in 1959, 1963 and 1967. In 1971, Bud Germa beat Sopha to take the seat for the NDP. Germa was re-elected in 1975 and 1977, but lost to Tory candidate Jim Gordon in 1981. Gordon was re-elected in 1985. Sterling Campbell won the seat in 1987 for the Liberals, only to lose it in 1990 to NDP candidate Sharon Murdock. Current incumbent Rick Bartolucci reclaimed the riding for the Liberals in 1995.

Between them, former MPP Elie Martel (1967-1987) and his daughter Shelley (1987-1999) held the old Sudbury East riding for the NDP for more than three decades. (Since 1999, Shelley has represented the post-redistribution riding of Nickel Belt.)
