The riding stretches from Highway 401, Morningside Avenue and Sheppard Avenue East in the south to Steeles Avenue East in the north. It lies between the Pickering Town Line, Finch Avenue East and Meadowvale Road in the east and Midland Avenue, Finch Avenue East and Brimley Road in the west.

The riding was created in 1986 from 41 per cent of York-Scarborough. In the 1996 redistribution, boundaries were redrawn. In 2004, the western boundary was moved east to Brimley Road and the southeast corner of the riding moved into Pickering-Scarborough East.
