About the St. Catharines
Electoral District

The City of St. Catharines (Electoral District of St. Catharines) is the largest city in Canada’s Niagara Region and the sixth largest urban area in Ontario.   The city is home to a robust arts culture, active sports and recreation community and beautiful parks and waterfronts including natural trails, the Welland Canal and historic Port Dalhousie.

With a new sports and entertainment centre (Meridian Centre) in the downtown core, a soon-to-be open performing arts centre, an ever expanding Brock University and state-of-the-art hospital, St. Catharines is poised for expansion and growth both from an economic development and population perspective.

Rick Dykstra has worked hard to secure federal funding for many community projects to help move St. Catharines forward.
