Update on the 2018 Municipal Elections
On July 30, 2018, the Province of Ontario introduced Bill 5, the Better Local Government Act, 2018. The Bill received Royal Assent on August 14, 2018 reducing the number of Toronto City wards from 47 to 25 with the boundaries aligning with current federal and provincial electoral ridings. It is anticipated that the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing will be enacting regulations to provide further details to implement the new legislation. These changes will be in place for the October 22, 2018 municipal election.
The City Clerk will provide notice to candidates, electors and the public as it becomes available. Please continue to check the Election Services website regularly for updated information, and visit the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing to obtain additional information for the 2018 municipal election.
