In 1924, it was defined to consist of the southwest part of the territorial district of Nipissing, and the southeast part of the territorial district of Sudbury.

In 1947, it was defined to consist of the eastern part of the territorial district of Sudbury and the territorial district of Nipissing, excluding he townships of Ballantyne, Wilkes, Pentland, Boyd and Cameron and all townships south of them.
