Conservative Garnett Genuis has been projected by Global News to win the Alberta riding of Sherwood Park—Fort Saskatchewan.

Formerly grouped with northeast Edmonton, Fort Saskatchewan and Sherwood Park were split off in 2012 to create this new riding and join a large rural area to the east of Edmonton. Other communities in this large riding include Cooking Lake and Josephburg. This riding consists of parts of the former ridings of Edmonton—Sherwood Park and Vegreville—Wainwright.

This riding was created in the 2012 redistribution. Garnett Genuis won the riding’s first election in 2015. He was re-elected in 2019.
