Description This riding is in central Saskatchewan, with the Saskatchewan River forming part of the northern boundary.

The city of Prince Albert is the major centre. Smaller communities include Melfort, Tisdale and Nipawin. There are also several First Nations reserves, and the overall aboriginal population is about 10 per cent. Francophones make up about three per cent of the population; immigrants another three per cent.

Prince Albert is the service centre for northern Saskatchewan and the service sector is one of the largest employers in the city. There are also many government jobs, a number of which are at the correctional facilities around Prince Albert. In rural areas, agriculture (especially alfalfa and canola production) is king. Unemployment was 7.4 per cent in 2001 and the average family income was $54,554.

The riding of Prince Albert was established in 1907. The current boundaries were drawn in 1996, by combining about two-thirds of Prince Albert-Churchill River with parts of Mackenzie and Saskatoon-Humboldt.

Population: 73,988
