On February 8, 2023, the Electoral Boundaries Commission for British Columbia submitted their final report to the House of Commons. You can read the full report and view the proposed new boundary maps here.

This report brings significant changes to the boundaries proposed last spring that are relevant for Mission—Matsqui—Fraser Canyon, including, but not limited to:
  • Elimination of the proposed new “Coquihalla” riding that would have included the portion of Highway One north of Hope to Boston Bar. Instead, this area, as well as Agassiz, will now be included in an expanded Chilliwack—Hope. 
    • Areas north of Boston Bar (Lillooet, the Bridge River Valley, Lytton, Ashcroft, Cache Creek, Wallachin, etc.) will be joining the new riding of Kamloops—Thompson—Nicola.
  • Maintaining the existing boundary along Maclure Road and expanding the Mission—Matsqui riding to include all of Abbotsford east of Sumas Way.
  • Pitt Meadows—Maple Ridge will return to its existing boundaries, except that it’s eastern border will move to Wren Street in Mission.
Over the next 30 days, Members of Parliament will have the opportunity to file objections with the Clerk of the Standing Committee on Procedure and House Affairs. Objections may be to riding names or boundaries and must be signed by at least 10 MPs. At the end of this period, the Commission will have an opportunity to review all objections and accept or reject each one ahead of tabling their final Representation Order to the House in September.
