Etobicoke North is located in the northwest corner of Toronto, stretching between the Humber River and Highway 427. Etobicoke North is a diverse ward—58 percent of the population is made up of immigrants, and 76 percent identify as visible minorities. Ward 1 was created in 2018, when Wards 1 and 2 were combined. A Ford family member has served as councillor for the ward from 2000 until this June, when Michael Ford resigned after winning a seat in the 2022 provincial election. Rosemarie Bryan won the vacant spot, but resigned shortly after when social media posts resurfaced that appeared to show her sharing anti-LGBTQ2+ content. Rose Milczyn was appointed interim councillor in August, but said that she never intended to and is not running for election.

Information in Candidate Tracker was compiled and written by The Local’s team of journalists and fact checkers. Candidates were emailed a questionnaire asking for information about their history, experience, and plans; not all candidates were reachable or responded. The Local also conducted its own research to independently source and verify information about each candidate. Candidate Tracker will expand and be updated as the election campaign continues.
