These reference maps show 1996 Census enumeration areas by federal electoral district. The FEDs are based on the 1987 Representation Order that was in effect on Census Day (May 14, 1996). the FED/EA maps are designed for the general reference of EA boundaries. The FED/EA maps in areas covered by the Street Network Files (SNF) wer produced using an automated mapping system different from that used in areas not in SNF coverage. For non-SNF areas, the maps wer produced from scanned Elections Canada maps, with an overlay of the Statistics Canada boundaries. The two types of maps have a different appearance, but both are in colour. One map of all federal electoral districts in Canada based on the 1987 Representation Order is also obtainable as an index to these FED/EA maps. It was produced by Natural Resources Canada for the Office of the Chief Electoral Officer, Elections Canada.
