Federal electoral district

Scarborough Centre was created in 1976. It consisted initially of the part of the Borough of Scarborough bounded on the west by Victoria Park Avenue, on the north by Ellesmere Road, on the east by Bellamy Road North, and on the south by Eglinton Avenue East.

In 1987, it was expanded to include the part of Scarborough lying bounded by Bellamy Road North, Lawrence Avenue East, Markham Road and Eglinton Avenue East.

In 1996, it was redefined such that it was bounded:
* on the west by Victoria Park Avenue,
*on the north by a line drawn from west to east along Ellesmere Road, north along the Canadian National Railway and west along Highway 401,
* on the east by a line drawn from north to south along Highland Creek East, west along Ellesmere Road, south along Scarborough Golf Club Road, west along Lawrence Avenue East and south along Markham Road, and
*on the south by Eglinton Avenue East.

In 2003, it was given its current boundaries as described above.
