British Columbia Gains Seats

6 More Seats For BC In Ottawa

Under the Fair Representation Act the House of Commons in Ottawa will increase the number of seats from 308 to 338 seats which means better representation for the province of British Columbia.

The changes will see the number of seats in BC increase from the current 36 to 42 under the new system. This represents an increase from 11.8 per cent of the Commons seats to 12.54 per cent under the new distribution. Our neighbours to the east in Alberta would also see their number of seats increase by a total of six.
