Scarborough-Rouge Park, on the easternmost edge of the city, includes the neighourhoods of Centennial, Highland Creek, Malvern, Morningside Heights, West Rouge, and Port Union. With sprawling suburban neighbourhoods of residential houses, it is one of the few Toronto neighbourhoods to have a negative growth rate between 2011 and 2016. The ward has a high proportion of visible minorities, at 72 percent, and household income that’s on par with the city average. Incumbent councillor Jennifer McKelvie was elected in 2018.

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 26, 2022.
