We’re all familiar with the riding our Member of Parliament represents—we do live there, after all. But do you know where your MP was born? Many of our elected representatives in the House of Commons represent their hometowns, but dozens were born outside of their ridings, and even outside the country. This map gives you a sense of the Commons’ worldly nature.

MPs are coded by party, and the info bubbles that pop up tell you which riding they represent, when they were born, and their occupations before they took office. Zoom in for a closer look at cities where lots of MPs were born.
