In the 1999 redistribution, the old Scarborough East riding remained largely intact, adding small parts of Scarborough-Ellesmere and Scarborough North.

Scarborough East was the home riding of Tory Margaret Birch (1971-85), who became Ontario's first female cabinet minister in 1972. Liberal Ed Fulton won the seat in 1985 and 1987, but lost it to the NDP's Robert Frankford in 1990. Frankford was defeated in 1995 by Tory Steve Gilchrist, who was re-elected in 1999 and 2003.
Liberal Mary Anne Chambers ousted Gilchrist in 2003, winning by 7,430 votes. She was named children and youth services minister in June 2005.
