Welcome to Toronto-Danforth

Map of Toronto-Danforth

The riding of Toronto–Danforth is a culturally and economically vibrant community. Its neighbourhoods include Greektown, East York, Leslieville, Little India, Chinatown East, Port Lands, Riverdale and more.

Toronto-Danforth has been represented federally in the House of Commons since 1979 (initially as the old Broadview-Grenwood riding until 2000). Notably, it was the riding former NDP and opposition leader Jack Layton represented from 2004 until his tragic death in 2011.

Provincially, Toronto-Danforth has been represented at Queen's Park since 1999, when it was created from the old Riverdale, York East and Beaches-Woodbine ridings to reflect federal boundaries.

Today, the riding is represented provincially by MPP Peter Tabuns

Clare Hacksel is our candidate in the next federal election. Her nomination was approved by Toronto-Danforth NDP members at our nomination meeting in July 2023. Clare was also our federal candidate in 2021.

Municipally, Toronto-Danforth is served by Ward 14 City Councillor Paula Fletcher. Sara Ehrhardt is the TDSB School Trustee for Ward 15 Toronto-Danforth.
