An electoral district in Canada is a geographical constituency upon which Canada's representative democracy is based. It is officially known in Canadian French as a circonscription but frequently called a comté (county), and is also colloquially and more commonly known as a riding or constituency. Alberta had three provincial districts that at various times returned two, five, six or seven members: see Calgary, Edmonton and Medicine Hat. Prior to 1924 these seats were filled through Plurality block voting but from 1924 to 1956 the seats were filled through Single transferable voting (STV).

  • Une circonscription électorale au Canada est un territoire géographique dans lequel la population se retrouve sur une même liste électorale et forme la base de la démocratie parlementaire canadienne. Une circonscription est parfois appelée comté dans le langage populaire ; ceci vient du fait qu'historiquement, les circonscriptions étaient identiques aux limites géographiques des comtés. (En anglais, le nom officiel est electoral district, bien qu'on voie plus souvent le mot riding ou constituency).
  • Избира́тельный о́круг (англ. electoral district, фр. circonscription électorale) — это географическая область, население которой включено в один список избирателей и которая является основой канадской парламентской демократии. В народе округ иногда называют графством; это происходит оттого, что исторически округа соответствовали географическим границам графств. (По-английски округ официально обозначается electoral district, хотя чаще встречается слово riding или constituency; по-французски — circonscription électorale (официально) или неофициально comté).
  • Виборчий округ (англ. Electoral district, фр. Circonscription électorale) — це географічна область Канади, населення якої включено в один список виборців і яка є основою канадської парламентської демократії. У народі округ іноді називають графством; це відбувається тому, що історично округу відповідали географічним межам графств. (англійською округ офіційно позначається — electoral district, хоча частіше зустрічається назва riding або constituency; французькою — circonscription électorale (офіційно) або неофіційно comté).
