The Niagara Falls City, located in Canada, is a district that is federal electoral. It has been presented since 1953 in Canada’s Commons. Back in 2011, the city had a population of around 82,997, which was just a meager 1% growth compared to the last counting in 2006.

While a population of below 100,000 might show just how sparsely populated the region is, it wasn’t so always. In fact, in one of our earlier articles we discussed just how Niagara Falls City flourished during the early part of the 19th century, even being referred to as the Honeymoon Capital of the world. And while a lot has changed since then, it still remains the favorite for tourists all over the world.

About the district

The district was created back in 1952 and was the first elections took place in 1953. 2015 was the last year when elections were held.

In 1952, the first demarcation was made, in townships of Willoughby, Crystal Beach, Fort Erie, and Stamford. The others were Chippewa, and the Niagara Falls City and Bertie.

In 1966 though, the list of townships that came under the list went in for a revision, with the exclusion of Chippewa, Fort Erie’s town and Stamford and Crystal Beach.

Additional changes were made in 1976, and the only one that were left on the list was the Niagara’s town that was on the lake and Niagara Falls city. In 1996 again, a part of Thorold City was added.

Politics issues

Today, 20% of the municipal politicians of Niagara are women.

Niagara has 4 Members of Provincial Parliament and 4 Members of Parliament.

However, the percentages of women who are councilors have gone down compared to previous elections. In the year 2010, the winners in elections for the council were nine men versгs three women.

While people of Niagara are embracing women leadership, more women need to come out and contest so that there can be equality in the council.

The competition for the positions of Regional Councils has also been tough. There was a time when only four women were elected, against as many as thirty-one men.

Even today, there are fewer women contesting for the political positions in Niagara compared to men. It needs to change, and there needs to be more women participation, and that can happen only when we see that their responsibilities are not holding them back.

What makes the city special?

In spite of a population less than 100,000, the city does have a lot to offer.
