District 19 Hastings and Prince Edward was formed in 1976. The district plays key role in helping members stay active and connected, with each other and the community.

District 19 is situated on the traditional territory of Indigenous peoples including the Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee and Tyendinaga. We also acknowledge the urban Indigenous communities in our district.

District 19 Hastings and Prince Edward recognizes the inequities connected to colonization and commits to working towards creating a just, inclusive and vibrant community for all. We invite our members to reflect the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s calls to action.
