Arm River is a provincial electoral district for the Legislative Assembly of Saskatchewan, Canada. This constituency is located in south central Saskatchewan. The district was created for the 1908 Saskatchewan general election, and it was last contested in the 2020 election. Grain farming and cattle ranching are the major economic activities of the area. The two largest towns in the constituency are Davidson and Outlook. Much of the Highway 11 corridor connecting Regina and Saskatoon lies within the constituency.

History

Arm River was originally created before the 2nd Saskatchewan general election in 1908 and has existed ever since. It was named for the Arm River which flows roughly through the middle of the district.

The riding's boundaries have changed many times over the years due to redistribution. Between 2003 and 2016, the district was called Arm River-Watrous as the riding had included much of the former Watrous constituency. The riding's name was changed back to Arm River for the 2016 general election.[1] [2]

For the next general election, the riding will be renamed Dakota-Arm River due to significant boundary shifts. The district will lose significant territory to Lumsden-Morse, Humboldt-Watrous, Kelvington-Wadena and Last Mountain-Touchwood, while gaining a much smaller (but more densely populated) area from Saskatoon Stonebridge-Dakota.
