York North was a provincial riding in Ontario, Canada, that was represented in the Legislative Assembly of Ontario from 1867 to 2007. The provincial riding was known as York—Mackenzie from 1995 to 1999.

In 2007, the Ontario provincial electoral district was eliminated when it was matched to the redistributed ridings of the federal districts. Julia Munro, who held the York North seat, was re-elected in the new riding of York—Simcoe.
