City of Toronto’s 47 Electoral Wards for 2018 Toronto Municipal Election

New Ward Boundaries for Toronto

The City of Toronto’s 2018 municipal election will be conducted using a new 47 ward boundary model for Toronto, a change from the current 44 ward model. This new 47 ward model will take effect on December 1, 2018 when the new 2018 – 2022 term of City Council begins.

Many City Council ward boundaries have changed as a result of the new model. In some cases, entirely new City Council wards have been created, with only 7 City Council ward boundaries remaining the same.  Beginning May 1, 2018 the City’s MyVote app will provide Torontonians information about City Council wards based on an individual address and the candidates that will be running in that ward in the 2018 Municipal Election.

A Ward Boundary review was conducted as Toronto’s population had grown significantly since the last review in 2000. Some City Council wards had grown 30 per cent to 45 per cent above the average ward population.  The City was concerned that the value of a resident’s vote may not be equal across all wards if this trend continued.  Information on the changes and process can be found on the Ward Boundary Review web pages.

The 47 ward boundary model is designed to last for four election cycles before a new ward boundary review is required (2018, 2022, 2026, and 2030).
