Parkdale was a Canadian federal electoral district represented in the Canadian House of Commons from 1917 to 1979. It included the community of Parkdale in the western part of Toronto. It was created in 1914 from Toronto West, and continued to exist until 1976 when most of it was merged into Parkdale—High Park with some sections into Trinity.
It initially consisted of the part of the city of Toronto west of a line beginning where Queen Street West meets Lake Ontario, east along Queen Street West to Dovercourt Road, north the Canadian Pacific Railway, west to the boundary of Ward 7, then along the boundary of Ward 7 to the northwest corner of High Park.
In 1924, it was redefined to consist of the part of the city of Toronto east of Atlantic Avenue and Dovercourt Road, and south of Bloor Street, and west of Indian Road and following Indian Road, Howard Park Avenue, and Sunnyside Avenue.
In 1933, it was redefined to consist of the part of the city of Toronto east of the westerly limit of Davenport Riding from Lake Ontario to the line of the Canadian Pacific Railway; thence westerly along the line of the Canadian Pacific Railway to the boundary between ward six and ward seven of the city of Toronto; thence southerly along the boundary between ward six and ward seven to the point where it intersects Bloor Street; thence westerly along the centre line of Bloor Street to the centre line of Indian Road; thence southerly along the centre line of Indian Road to the centre line of Howard Park Avenue; thence easterly along the centre line of Howard Park Avenue to its intersection with the centre line of Sunnyside Avenue; thence southerly along the centre line of Sunnyside Avenue to Lake Ontario; thence easterly along Lake Ontario to Dufferin Street.
It was further redefined several times.
In 1966, it was defined to consist of the part of Toronto west of Atlantic Avenue and Dovercourt Road, south of Bloor Street, and east of Parkside Drive.
