View Link »

Conservative Party candidate Cheryl Gallant is projected to win re-election in Renfrew–Nipissing–Pembroke.

The riding of Renfrew–Nipissing–Pembroke is located in the eastern portion of southern Ontario.

It includes the county of Renfrew, the city of Pembroke and part of the territorial district of Nipissing. It borders on a western section of Quebec and sits along the Ottawa River.

Gallant was first elected MP of the riding in 2000 under the Canadian Alliance Party banner. She has held the seat consecutively since then, making her the longest-serving woman in federal caucus.

Prior to Gallant’s victory, the riding had been a Liberal stronghold since it was first represented in 1979.

Just over 23 per cent of the riding’s population has French origins, according to the 2016 census.
