History

The riding of Parkdale—High Park was unchanged after the 2014 Ontario election when a provincial riding redistribution process was undertaken that saw new ridings created and several existing riding boundaries changed. When the legislature was dissolved, the seat was vacant following the retirement of long-time NDP MPP Cheri DiNovo at the end of 2017. Before 2006, the riding was previously held by the Liberals.
