Update on the 2018 Municipal Elections

On August 14, 2018, the Bill 5, the Better Local Government Act, 2018,  was passed by the Government of Ontario and received Royal Assent. The Act reduces the number of Toronto wards from 47 to 25, and extends the nomination period for councillor and school board trustee nominations. Mayoral nominations were not extended; the nomination deadline for the office of mayor was July 27. The new 25 ward boundaries align with the current federal and provincial electoral ridings, with minor adjustment to stay within geographic boundaries of Toronto.

The Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing enacted the following regulations Ontario Regulation 408/18: Wards and Ontario Regulation 407/18: 2018 and 2022 Regular Elections to provide further details for implementation.

All new changes will be in place for the October 22, 2018 municipal election.
