The Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission for Saskatchewan has proposed a new electoral map for consideration at public hearings this fall.
The commission is proposing to establish two exclusively urban electoral districts in Regina and three in Saskatoon.
The remaining seven would be primarily rural.
The proposal takes into account Saskatchewan's increase in population as captured in the 2011 census, as well as movement within the province.
Residents are invited to share their views on the proposed federal electoral map at public hearings which begin September 17th in Regina, then travel to Swift Current, Weyburn, and Fort Qu'Appelle in the south.
The hearings will be in North Battleford on October 2nd, in Prince Albert on the 3rd, Tisdale on the 4th and Saskatoon on the 5th.
