This low- to middle-income riding in northeast Toronto is home to the Rouge Valley, the largest natural park in the Greater Toronto Area.

The riding extends from Steeles Avenue in the north to Sheppard Avenue and Highway 401 in south. Its western boundary is the CN Rail line, and it stretches east to the city limits.

According to the 1996 census, the immigrant population in this riding is approximately 64 per cent, - the highest in Canada. Fewer than half of the residents here list English as their mother tongue, and it boasts the highest percentage of Chinese in the province.

In the 1999 redistribution, the new Scarborough-Rouge River riding took in nearly all of the existing Scarborough North.

Political History:

Tory Tom Wells held the seat from 1963 to 1985, when the current incumbent, Liberal Alvin Curling, won the first of five consecutive victories.
