Scarborough—Rouge Park is representative of the wonderful diversity of Toronto’s geography and residents.
Geographically, its southern border runs along the coastline of Lake Ontario and its eastern edge is home to the vibrant Rouge National Urban Park.
A quick look at the 2016 Census provides a glimpse into the rich multiculturality of its community. With a population just over 100,000, more than half of Scarborough—Rouge Park’s residents are newcomers to Canada. Nearly three quarters of its residents are racialized with backgrounds hailing from all across the globe. More than one third of the total population have a mother tongue other than English, and well over 100 different languages are spoken at home and throughout Scarborough—Rouge Park.
While Scarborough—Rouge Park embodies the diversity of Toronto, it is also a cultural and academic hub in its own right. It is home to the Scarborough campus of Centennial College, the oldest publicly funded college in Ontario. It is also home to the Scarborough campus of the University of Toronto which attracts students from across the city, Turtle Island, and from around the world.
