Municipal Ward Boundaries

In 1993, the Council of the City of Prince Albert passed Bylaw No. 62 of 1993 to establish that our city would be divided into eight wards for the purpose of electing councillors to represent each ward.

In January of 1994, a Municipal Wards Commission established the ward boundaries which were subsequently reviewed by a Municipal Wards Commission in 2003 and again in 2011. Section 60(b) of The Cities Act provides that ward boundaries shall be reviewed at least once every nine years.

The Act also describes that the Commission shall establish boundaries for the required number of wards so that, as nearly as is reasonably practical, the population is evenly distributed among the wards, within a 10 percent variance.
