It also includes part of the city of St. Catharines south of St. Paul Street West, St. Paul Crescent, Twelve Mile Creek and Glendale Avenue.

The area is heavily industrialized and a large percentage of the work force is employed in steel, rubber, textile, automobile and other types of manufacturing. The average family income is $61,498.

In the 2001 census, more than seven per cent listed French as their mother tongue and 7.9 per cent were Italian.
