Beaches—East York (formerly Beaches—Woodbine) is a federal electoral district in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, that has been represented in the Canadian House of Commons since 1988.
The riding combines two notable city neighbourhoods: the Beaches and part of the former borough of East York. This political boundary is an area used for both provincial and federal representation; municipally it is divided into two halves, with a councillor for the Beaches (Ward 32) in the south, and one for East York (Ward 31) to the north.
The federal riding of Beaches—Woodbine was created before the 1988 federal election from Beaches riding. Before the 1997 federal election, it adopted its current name.

Famous quotes containing the word york:
“New York was a new and strange world. Vast, impersonal, merciless.... Always before I had felt like a person, an individual, hopeful that I could mold my life according to some desire of my own. But here in New York I was ignorant, insignificant, unimportantone in millions whose destiny concerned no one. New York did not even know of my existence. Nor did it care.”
—Agnes Smedley (18901950)
