This riding in west Toronto is the southernmost of the three Etobicoke ridings. The northern section of the riding is comprised mainly of residential areas, while the southern section is residential and industrial-commercial.
The boundaries have been redrawn in advance of the 2015 election and now stretch from Lake Ontario in the south to Mimico Creek, Bloor Street West and Dundas Street West in the north. The riding runs west to Highway 427 and Etobicoke Creek and east to the Humber River.
Etobicoke-Lakeshore was created in 1976 from portions of Toronto-Lakeshore and High Park-Humber Valley. In 1996, a small piece of Etobicoke Centre was added in the north.
