Contents

The district was created in 1967 from the former electoral district of Halifax West, under the name Halifax-St. Margaret's. Upon the recommendations of the 1992 Electoral Boundaries Commission report, it was renamed Timberlea-Prospect. At this same time, it lost the St. Margaret's Bay area to Chester-St. Margaret's, the Hammonds Plains, Lucasville, and Pockwock Road area to Sackville-Beaver Bank, and the Bedford area to Bedford-Fall River. In 2003, it lost the Bayside and West Dover areas to Chester-St. Margaret's. In 2013, on the recommendations of the 2012 Electoral Boundaries Commission, it lost the Stillwater Lake area to Hammonds Plains-Lucasville and a small number of streets in the Williamswood and Harrietsfield areas to Halifax Atlantic. It gained the Susies Lake and Quarrie Lake areas from Halifax Clayton Park. [1]

Geography

Timberlea-Prospect has 342 km2 (132 sq mi) of land area. [2]
