Federal Electoral Districts – Redistribution 2022:
Public participation – British Columbia
The Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission for British Columbia is holding 27 public hearings, in person and virtual, to gather comments and feedback on the proposed boundaries and electoral district names.

To attend a public hearing, you must send a notice of representation.

You can send your notice of representation to the Commission Secretary by:
- mailing it to their office
- emailing it to BC-CB@redecoupage-federal-redistribution.ca
- filling out the Public hearing notice form
- using the Interactive Mapping Tool
If you wish to make a representation at a hearing, you should inform the Commission in writing no later than one week prior to the hearing at which you wish to make the representation.
Your notice of representation should include:
- your name, address and contact information
- the organization you represent (if any)
- the date of the public hearing that you wish to attend
- a short overview of the issues you intend to address
- your official language of preference

Protect Early Farmland in BC
The farmland is located on 192nd Street in Campbell Heights, Surrey BC. With its beach-like sandy soil upon a level hill-top, it never floods, it can be planted or harvested on nearly any day of the year and has a special micro-climate suited for early production. Western Canada’s potato harvest starts on this farmland each year. Thereafter, an estimated 30-50 million servings of potatoes, carrots, cabbage, parsnips, and squash are produced from the land annually. That’s enough fresh food to put a vegetable serving on every Metro-Vancouverite’s dinner plate for 2-3 weeks. As harvest begins before other vegetable fields in BC, this land reduces BC’s reliance on imported vegetables.
Sadly, this exact parcel of farmland is slated to be sold and developed into industrial buildings.
Join the call to protect the unique 300-acre parcel of prime farmland for current and future generations.
