Electoral map redistricted in PEI. : Évangéline-Miscouche enlarged

Although the last electoral redistribution changed the boundaries of the Évangéline-Miscouche constituency, the commission overseeing the changes ensured that it could continue to represent the interests of French-speaking Acadians.

The constituency's constitution ensures that the MP elected there represents the island province's Acadian and French-speaking communities.

Since the constituency did not have enough voters, its geographical boundaries were increased by a few kilometers.

The Electoral Boundaries Revision Commission also wanted to increase the chances of an Acadian member being elected to the Legislative Assembly, even though the law does not require this.

It was the electoral law that forced the review of this constituency. The same law provides that the number of voters per constituency in Prince Edward Island cannot be more or less than 25% of the average for other constituencies.
