The riding is bordered in the north by Highway 401, Eglinton Avenue in the south, and Yonge Street in the east.

Eglinton-Lawrence has a diverse economic base, with the western portion containing more than 600 small manufacturing establishments interspersed with residential areas.

After the redistribution of 1999, the new riding combined 52 per cent of the old Lawrence riding, 35 per cent of Eglinton, 3 per cent of Oakwood, six per cent of St. Andrew-St. Patrick, 12 per cent of Wilson Heights and nine per cent of York Mills.

Political History:

The Liberal Party reigned in the old Lawrence riding for four straight elections following its creation in 1987.

In the former Eglinton riding, the PC winning streak started in 1962 and ran through to 1987. Starting in 1975, the riding was held for a decade by Roy McMurtry; he resigned the seat after losing a bid for the PC leadership.
