This riding stretches from the Lake Scugog in the north to the shore of Lake Ontario in the south. To the west, it reaches the outskirts of Oshawa, to the south the town of Clarington, and in the north, the township of Scugog and the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.
All of it lies within the Municipality of Durham, and the riding encompasses some 25 communities including Bowmanville and Courtice.
After the 1999 redistribution, the new Durham riding took in almost 90 per cent of the old Durham-East riding and nearly 25 per cent of the Oshawa riding.
The 2007 redistribution added Uxbridge Township, but removed all the Oshawa territory from the riding.
Population: 118,500 (2006 census; an increase of 10.3% since 2001)
Progressive Conservative John O’Toole was elected to a fourth term in Durham in 2011.
O'Toole has represented the new Durham riding since its creation in 1999, winning by comfortable margins each time.
In the old Durham-East, PC candidate Sam Cureatz defeated NDP incumbent Doug Moffat in the 1977 election by just 122 votes. Cureatz was re-elected through to 1990, when the seat returned to the NDP. The riding went Progressive Conservative again in 1995 by a decisive 15,784-vote margin.
