Strathcona West

Strathcona West was a provincial electoral district in Alberta, Canada. It was created in 1959 when Edmonton broke up into nine ridings.

In 1971 the riding was split between Edmonton-Whitemud and Edmonton-Parkallen.

1959 Redistribution

The historic 1959 redistribution of the provincial ridings of Calgary and Edmonton standardized the voting system back to First Past the Post. From 1926 to 1959 Calgary and Edmonton members were elected by Single Transferable Vote. The rest of the province had the option of how to count ballots. The redistribution created nine ridings in Edmonton.

The other eight ridings were Edmonton Centre, Edmonton North, Edmonton Norwood, Edmonton North East, Edmonton North West, Strathcona East, Strathcona Centre and Jasper West.
