Canadian federal election results in Northern Saskatchewan

This is page shows results of Canadian federal elections in the northern part of the province of Saskatchewan.

Regional profile

Like southern Saskatchewan, the northern areas traditionally feature a strong urban-rural split, although it is less pronounced here. The Conservatives swept here in 2004 and the former Canadian Alliance also nearly swept the region in 2000. The rural areas (except for far Northern Saskatchewan) are almost as conservative as their counterparts in Alberta. The far north with its high first nations population has stronger support for the Liberals, and the Liberals were able to pick up the far northern seat in 2006 in a controversial close election. Saskatoon also has large Liberal support as well as traditional New Democratic Party support. Like Regina, Saskatoon has double the population of a typical Canadian urban riding. However, until 2015 the surrounding areas were thought to be too thinly populated for ridings of their own. As a result, for almost two decades Saskatoon's four federal ridings included large blocks of rural territory, a major reason why the NDP and Liberals have been shut out in Saskatoon since 2000.

With the 2015 redistribution, Saskatoon is split between three ridings located almost entirely within the city limits.
