Sudbury had its own riding as early as 1905. It initially included a large portion of the Sudbury District; in 1952, the boundaries were narrowed significantly to include only the city of Sudbury, the geographic township of McKim and the town of Copper Cliff.

In 1976, Sudbury's growth in population led the riding to shrink further. It now included only the northern half of the city; the city's southern half was incorporated into Nickel Belt.


In 2004, a decline in population led to this riding expanding geographically to include the former Town of Walden, now part of the City of Greater Sudbury. The remainder of the city continues to be served by the Nickel Belt riding. Walden was a town in Ontario, Canada, which existed from 1973 to 2000. ...

History

The provincial electoral district was created in 1905.


In 1996, Ontario was divided into the same electoral districts as those used for federal electoral purposes. They were redistributed whenever a readjustment took place at the federal level.


In 2005, legislation was passed by the Legislature to divide Ontario into 107 electoral districts, beginning with the next provincial election in 2007. The eleven northern electoral districts are those defined for federal purposes in 1996, based on the 1991 census (except for a minor boundary adjustment). The 96 southern electoral districts are those defined for federal electoral purposes in 2003, based on the 2001 census. Without this legislation, the number of electoral districts in northern Ontario would have been reduced from eleven to ten.[1]
