History

Amrit Mangat has held this riding for the Liberals since it was created before the 2007 election. Prior to that, the riding was part of four different electoral districts, which had elected both PC and Liberal MPPs.

In 2011, this riding had the lowest voter turnout of any Ontario riding.

By the numbers

An incredibly diverse riding, 14 different languages are represented by more than 3,000 people in this riding, according to how they identified their mother tongue in the 2011 census. Just 10.6 per cent of people identified as third-generation Canadians, the lowest number in any of the Mississauga or Brampton ridings.
