Public input sought on options for Toronto's new Community Council boundaries

The City of Toronto is seeking the public's input on options for Community Council boundaries and what Toronto City Council should consider when drawing new boundaries. To support the transition to 47 wards (from the current 44) and prepare for the municipal election in October, City Council must establish new boundaries for Community Councils before the end of the current term.

Members of the public can view an Options Paper that outlines potential Community Council boundaries, comment on their preferred model or propose a new model and identify its benefits. The paper provides information about Community Councils and their history and role in Toronto, and presents options and considerations for building an effective, lasting model for the City. 

Input will be received until 5 p.m. on Friday, May 25 and can be submitted in the following ways:

  • Online: http://www.toronto.ca/CommunityCouncilBoundaries
  • By mail: City Manager’s Office, City of Toronto, 10th Floor East Tower, City Hall, 100 Queen St. W., Toronto, ON M5H2N2
  • Tax counter drop-boxes at any Toronto civic centre; locations/addresses available at http://www.toronto.ca/counter-locations or by calling 311
  • Public Open House: Tuesday, May 15 from 7 to 9 p.m. in Committee Room 2, City Hall, 100 Queen St. W. Residents are invited to drop by any time during the open house to learn more about Community Councils and the options for new boundaries and to provide their input.

Input from Torontonians will help inform the City Manager's recommendations to Council on Toronto’s new Community Council boundaries. The Options Paper can be found at http://www.toronto.ca/CommunityCouncilBoundaries.
