HistoryEdit

It was created in 1996 from Kent and Lambton—Middlesex. It was renamed "Middlesex—Kent—Lambton" briefly in 2003 to 2004. The retirement of longtime MP Rose-Marie Ur in 2006 allowed Bev Shipley, her Conservative opponent in 2004, to seize the riding. Shipley has held it ever since, and easily held it in 2015 in the face of the Liberal surge that swept through Ontario.

This riding lost a fraction of territory to Chatham-Kent—Leamington and gained a fraction from Chatham-Kent—Essex during the 2012 electoral redistribution.
