The riding was created in 2003 from parts of Hastings—Frontenac—Lennox and Addington and Lanark—Carleton, and was first contested in the 2004 general election. Conservative candidate Scott Reid, the incumbent MP for Lanark-Carleton and Liberal candidate Larry McCormick, incumbent MP for Hastings—Frontenac—Lennox and Addington, both ran for the seat. Bill Vankoughnet, a former Progressive Conservative MP who had represented Hastings—Frontenac—Lennox and Addington prior to 1993, also ran for the seat. Reid was elected by a margin of over 10,000 votes, and was re-elected by gradually increasing margins in 2006, 2008, and 2011. By the final election held in the riding, Reid's margin of victory had grown to 20,000 votes.

The riding's conservative voting pattern was in line with rural ridings immediately to the west of the city of Ottawa; in four federal elections, Reid never dipped below 27,000 votes, while no challenger rose above 18,000 votes. He was the only MP ever elected in Lanark-Frontenac-Lennox and Addington.
