Map of Spadina-Fort York riding

Spadina—Fort York is a federal electoral district in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Spadina—Fort York was created by the 2012 federal electoral boundaries redistribution and was legally defined in the 2013 representation order. It came into effect upon the call of the 42nd Canadian federal election in October 2015.[1]

It covers most of the western portion of Downtown Toronto, and is essentially the successor of Trinity—Spadina, covering the area of that riding south of Dundas Street. It also absorbed part of the western portion of Toronto Centre.[2]
