In 2014, Toronto City Council launched an initiative to ensure effective representation within the ward structure of the city. This process involves extensive public consultation to find a way to address the current ward population imbalance.
The Toronto Ward Boundary Review Options Report was recently released and it presents five options for restructuring ward boundaries across the city.
Public meetings have been scheduled across the city to present the options and gather feedback. There will be a meeting on Wednesday, October 7, 2015 at Metro Hall (55 John Street; Room 308/309) from 7-9pm. Click here for a complete list of public meetings across the city.
From Councillor Cressy: There are significant changes proposed to the boundaries of ward 20 given our large and continually growing population. I am carefully reviewing each of the proposals and will be continuing to consult with all of our neighbourhoods throughout this process. I would encourage each of you to review the report, to attend the meetings, and submit your feedback online.
Please share and pass this along to others who may wish to participate
