Toronto West

Toronto West was a federal electoral district in the City of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, that was represented in the Canadian House of Commons from 1904 to 1925. This riding was created in 1903 when West Toronto riding was renamed, and reduced from electing two members of the House of Commons to one.

Toronto West initially consisted of the portion of the city of Toronto east of Palmerston Avenue and north of Queen Street West. In 1914, the riding was redefined to consist of the portion of the City of Toronto bounded by Queen Street West, Spadina Avenue, Bloor Street West and Dovercourt Road.

The electoral district was abolished in 1924 when it was redistributed between Toronto South and Toronto West Centre ridings.
