This is a list of reeves and mayors of Scarborough, Ontario. The township of Scarborough was created in 1850. The head of the local government was a reeve until the incorporation of Scarborough as a borough in 1967, at which point the head of the local government was styled as mayor and continued after becoming a city in 1983. Since 1998, Scarborough has been a community within the city of Toronto, and the head of the local government is the mayor of Toronto.

The only living mayor of the former municipality is Paul Cosgrove.
