This riding is located in the northeast area of Toronto and boasts Ontario's second most ethnically-diverse population, with 76.6 per cent identified as visible minorities. More than 28 per cent have Chinese as their ethnic origin, but there are also significant numbers of Tamils, Sri Lankans, Italians and Greeks.

Its boundaries are Steeles Avenue (the Toronto city limits) in the north and Ellesmere Road in the south, Victoria Park Avenue in the west and the CN rail line in the east.

Small business and light industry account for most of the economic activity in the riding.

In the 1999 redistribution, the new riding added about 15 per cent of Scarborough-Ellesmere to the existing Scarborough-Agincourt.

Political History:

In the old Scarborough North riding, Conservative Tom Wells was elected for six terms beginning in 1963. He didn't run in 1985, when the seat went to Liberal Alvin Curling.

Liberal Gerry Phillips has won every election in Scarborough-Agincourt since its creation in 1987.
