30th 2019 To be determined

The district was created in 2017 when the Electoral Boundaries Commission recommended renaming Calgary-Hawkwood and shifting its boundaries eastward into Calgary-Foothills and Calgary-Varsity, losing the Silver Springs, Citadel and Arbour Lake neighbourhoods while gaining Dalhousie, Edgemont, and Hamptons. The riding is one of the more populous districts created in this redistribution, resulting from the Commission's decision not to divide any of its communities.[2]
