The ward contains areas such as Regent Park (Canada's first social housing development), St. James Town (a largely immigrant area and the most densely populated neighbourhood in Canada), Cabbagetown, Church and Wellesley (a historic LGBTQ2 neighbourhood), Ryerson University, The Toronto Eaton Centre and part of the city's financial district (the east side of Bay Street).
