History

The West Kootenay riding appeared as such only in the 1890 election. In 1894, due to a surge in population related to the "silver rush" in the Kootenays, the riding was redistributed into:

*West Kootenay (north riding)
*West Kootenay (south riding)

In 1898, the West Kootenay riding was further redistributed into four ridings:

*West Kootenay-Nelson, a provincial district from 1898 to 1903
*West Kootenay-Revelstoke, a provincial district from 1898 to 1903
*West Kootenay-Rossland, a provincial district from 1898 to 1903
*West Kootenay-Slocan, a provincial district from 1898 to 1903
