Update on the 2018 Municipal Elections

On July 30, 2018, the Province of Ontario introduced Bill 5, the Better Local Government Act, 2018. If the Bill is adopted it would reduce the number of Toronto City wards from 47 to 25 with the boundaries aligning with current federal and provincial electoral ridings.  These changes would be in place for the October 22, 2018 municipal election.

The 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.

This page will be updated as changes become available.
