Using information from the public meetings and from Elections Nova Scotia, the commission, by majority, is recommending a House of Assembly of 55 seats. The minority view was to recommend Chéticamp as an exceptional district and the rationale for this is in a letter of dissent. However, the report is signed by all nine commissioners.
In the proposed House of Assembly there are two additional seats for Halifax Regional Municipality and the restoration of the Acadian electoral districts which are Clare, Argyle, Richmond, and the Preston electoral district. The commission has made changes to many existing boundaries that have been in place since 2012, but has tried to respect municipal boundaries and the interests of communities expressed at the public consultations.
