Nestled south of Highway 401, east of Highland Creek on the shores of Lake Ontario, the Centennial community is still known as Scarborough’s best kept secret. An abundance of parks and open spaces surround approximately 4,000 households.
The Centennial area is regarded as a model neighbourhood where people share a sense of togetherness and concern about the wellbeing of their community.
For over 65 years, the CCRA has been instrumental in promoting cooperation and bringing people together through community events, shared initiatives and neighbourhood concerns.
For details about Centennial Scarborough gathered from the 2011 census, see the neighbourhood profile on the City of Toronto website.
Riding of Scarborough – Rouge Park
The former federal riding of Pickering-Scarborough East was dissolved in 2012, and with new boundaries drawn, our riding is now Scarborough – Rouge Park. With a diverse population of 102,646 (2011), it stretches from Steeles Avenue to the north, the Scarborough-Pickering border to the east, Lake Ontario to the south, and Morningside Avenue/Highway 401/Neilson Road/Rouge River to the west. Scarborough–Rouge Park includes the communities of Centennial Scarborough, as well as West Rouge, West Hill, Highland Creek, Morningside Heights and Rouge Park.
Due to Provincial law, provincial ridings are typically the same as those on the federal level, with the exception being Northern Ontario. Our new riding of Scarborough-Rouge Park may be copied for a Provincial election, pending a review from the Province.
