Etobicoke—Lakeshore (formerly known as Lakeshore and Toronto—Lakeshore) is a federal electoral district in Ontario, Canada, that has been represented in the House of Commons of Canada since 1968.

It covers the southern part of the Etobicoke portion of Toronto on the shore of Lake Ontario including the former 'Lakeshore Municipalities' of Mimico, New Toronto and Long Branch.

The riding was created in 1966 as "Lakeshore" from part of York—Humber, the same year the 'Lakeshore municipalities', Mimico, New Toronto, Long Branch were annexed to the new Borough of Etobicoke. In 1971, it was renamed "Toronto—Lakeshore". In 1976, it was abolished, and replaced by "Etobicoke—Lakeshore".

The riding was represented by federal Liberal Party and official Opposition leader Michael Ignatieff, who was first elected in 2006, until he was unseated in the 2011 General Election by Conservative Bernard Trottier. It was previously represented by Jean Augustine. Provincially, it has been represented by Peter Milczyn since 2014. On Toronto City Council, the southern half of the riding is represented by Mark Grimes, and the northern half by James Maloney.

In the 1988 federal election, there was no Liberal candidate on the ballot because two days after nominations were due, the Liberal candidate, Emmanuel Feuerwerker, withdrew citing heart problems after the news media reported that Mr. Feuerwerker's campaign literature claimed university degrees that he did not, in fact, possess.[citation needed]

The percentage of native speakers of Slavic languages in this riding (primarily Polish, Ukrainian, Russian and Serbian) is 15.0%, the highest in Canada.[3]
