York—Humber was a federal electoral district represented in the House of Commons of Canada from 1953 to 1968. It was located in the province of Ontario. This riding was created in 1952 from parts of York South riding.

York—Humber consisted of the towns of Mimico and Weston (excluding the Ellis Court Apartments), the village of Swansea, and parts of the townships of Etobicoke and York in what was later known as Metropolitan Toronto.

The electoral district was abolished in 1966 when it was re-distributed between Etobicoke, High Park, Lakeshore, York South and York West ridings.
