Description This downtown Toronto riding mixes the wealthy enclave of Rosedale with the densely populated apartments of St. Jamestown and a noted gay district.

The riding stretches from Toronto Harbour in the south to the southern boundary of Mount Pleasant Cemetery in the north, between the Don River in the east and Avenue Road, Queen's Park, College Street and Yonge Street in the west.

The population of the riding is among the most transient in Canada. Renters outnumber homeowners 73 per cent to 27 per cent. Average family income is $124,082 (the third highest in Canada) and unemployment is 7.8 per cent. The majority of jobs are in the service sector, including finance and insurance. More than 34 per cent of residents have university degrees.

According to the 2001 census, 42 per cent of the population are immigrants, with a significant Chinese community.

The riding of Rosedale was established in 1933. Its name was changed to Toronto Centre-Rosedale in 1996 and to Toronto Centre in 2004, when it added a small part of St. Paul's in the northwest and Toronto-Danforth in the northeast.
