New Brunswick election: Moncton East

Riding background

The 2013 redistrcting process created a new riding that shared the name of Moncton East, but dramatically reshaped the boundaries of the district.

The new riding contains parts of the former ridings of Moncton East, Moncton Crescent, Dieppe Centre-Lewisville, Memramcook-Lakeville-Dieppe and Kent South.

The district of Moncton East includes the northeastern parts of the city of Moncton, as well as neighbouring suburban communities northeast of Moncton, stretching into the edge of Kent County.
