With a population of 129,080, Etobicoke-Lakeshore includes the neighbourhoods of Mimico, New Toronto, Long Branch, and the southern part of Etobicoke bordering Lake Ontario. It’s a rapidly changing ward, with a population that’s increasing at twice the city rate, driven by an influx of working-age individuals in recent years. The average household income is $105,994, slightly higher than the city’s $102,721. The current councillor, Mark Grimes, has served on city council since 2003.

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.
