Bordered by Steeles Avenue to the north, Highway 401 to the south, Victoria Park Avenue to the west, and Midland Avenue to the east, Scarborough-Agincourt is one of the most diverse wards in the city—81 percent of the population identifies as a visible minority and 66 percent of residents are immigrants. Affordable housing is a key issue in the ward, with 47.4 percent of households paying more than 30 percent of their income towards shelter costs. Incumbent councillor Nick Mantas won a by-election in 2021, after former councillor Jim Karygiannis was removed from office due to campaign overspending during the 2018 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. If you’re a candidate whose information is not here, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Last updated: September 14, 2022.
