Riding profile

riding map

This residential riding in west-end Toronto runs the gamut from beautifully manicured lawns and stately homes to no-frills public housing.

Etobicoke Centre is bordered by Dixon Road and Dundas Street to the north, Burnhamthorpe Road and Highway 427 to the south. The riding also runs from the Humber River to the east to Etobicoke Creek and Dundas Street West to the west.

The 1999 redistribution incorporated 85 per cent of the old Etobicoke West riding with 58 per cent of Etobicoke-Humber.

In the 2007 redistribution, the northern boundary was altered to follow Dixon Road as far as the Humber River.

Population: 111,349 (2006 census; a decrease of 0.4% since 2001)

Political history

In 2011, Liberal Donna Cansfield was elected to a third term in Etobicoke Centre. She won with more than 51 per cent of the vote. PC candidate Mary Anne Demonte-Whelan placed second, winning support from about one-third of voters.

Cansfield beat PC hopeful Rose Andrachuk in 2003. The incumbent then defeated PC candidate Mike Pringle by a 7,272-vote margin in 2007.

The Tories' Chris Stockwell had held the Etobicoke Centre riding since its creation in 1999, but announced in 2003 that he would not be seeking re-election. That news came after a report from the province's integrity commissioner that criticized the fact that expenses from a family vacation were paid for by Ontario Power Generation and his riding association.

The riding of Etobicoke-West was established in 1987 and was initially held by the Liberals. In 1990, Stockwell scored the first of three consecutive victories.

In the old Etobicoke-Humber riding, also established in 1987, the Liberals won in 1987 and 1990, but lost to the Tories in 1995.

The old riding of Humber was a Tory stronghold from 1975 to 1985, when Liberal Jim Henderson beat PC candidate Morley Kells.
