Canada is divided into 308 electoral districts. A representative or member of Parliament is elected for each electoral district.
Following the release of population counts from each decennial census, the Chief Electoral Officer determines the number of seats in the House of Commons and publishes the information in the Canada Gazette. Electoral boundaries commissions then determine the adjustments to the constituency boundaries. The federal electoral boundaries commissions are independent bodies that make all decisions regarding the proposed and final federal electoral boundaries.
Elections Canada provides support services to the boundaries commission in each province.
Based on reports from these commissions, the Chief Electoral Officer prepares a representation order that describes the boundaries and specifies the name and the population of each FED. The representation order is in force on the first dissolution of Parliament that occurs at least one year after its proclamation. The 2003 Representation Order (proclaimed on August 25, 2003) was based on 2001 Census population counts, and increased the number of FEDs to 308, up from 301 from the previous 1996 Representation Order. Ontario received three additional seats, while Alberta and British Columbia each gained two seats. The names of FEDs may change at any time through an Act of Parliament.

This layer shows the Ministry of Fisheries General Statistical Areas as cut to the coastline (LINZ digital topographic data originally created for the NZMS 260 1: 50,000 map series).

The areas are legally defined in various locations and to different degrees of accuracy-

Areas 001-052
Legal definitions for statistical areas (001 to 052) were sourced from the legally
authoritative definition given on Map 9: General Statistical Areas (ambiguity exists as to the precise nature of the boundary between statistical areas 016 and 017 through Cook Strait. This boundary has been digitised according to the boundary depicted on Map 9).
The intersection of areas 37,39 and 40 (near Wanganui) has been updated in
Version 2 of the mapping of the General Statistical areas. The certified General
Statistical Areas Map 9 shows a North East line between areas 37 and 39, meeting
area 40 at a point on the coast. However, on a fine scale, an exact North Easterly
line creates an intersection approximately one kilometre off the Coast. One possible
interpretation of map 9 is that the line between area 37 and 39 should be exactly
North East, or alternatively a line generally North East, meeting area 40 exactly on
the coast. The interpretation shown is that the intersection of the areas should be
exactly on the coast. The mapped intersection is now coincident with the coastline
on the line of latitude south 39degrees 56minutes.

Areas 091-801
The boundaries for statistical areas 091 to 801 are defined in the map “Proposed
Statistical Areas for New Zealand EEZ”, created in December, 1989 (The areas 091
to 801 are not authorized for statutory reporting purposes, and latitude and longitude
positions are required if fishing occurs in these areas). Ambiguity exists with regard
to the diagonal boundaries forming parts of statistical areas 101, 302, 303, 504, 603,
604, 605, 606, 701 and 801. These parts of the boundaries have been constructed
according to the Fisheries Management Area boundaries they appear to follow.

This dataset is the definitive set of ward boundaries at 1 January 2012 as defined by the territorial authorities and/or Local Government Commission, but maintained by Statistics New Zealand (who are the custodian).

Wards were originally set up within any territorial authority with a population of 20,000. Wards are defined under the local Electoral Act 2001 and result from the division, of the district of a territorial authority for electoral purposes. The ward system was designed to allow for the recognition of communities within a district and to increase community involvement in the local government system. Now, territorial authorities can choose whether they would like to maintain electoral wards. As a result, the number of wards has steadily decreased. Ward boundaries are reviewed in the year immediately preceding the triennial local government elections.
