Located in downtown Toronto, between Dundas Street and Lake Ontario, Spadina-Fort York is one of the most contested races in the municipal election. With former councillor Joe Cressy not seeking re-election, 12 candidates are running to take his place. One of the fastest growing wards in the city, Spadina-Fort York is fairly young and educated, with the median age listed at 32.4 and 79 percent of residents holding a post-secondary education.

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. If you’re a candidate whose information is not here, please email us at elections@thelocal.to. Last updated: September 29, 2022.
