Toronto Ward Boundary Review - Appeal Process

At its meeting on November 8 and 9, 2016 City Council considered a final report on new ward boundary options for the City and selected a 47-ward boundary option.

At its meeting on March 28 and 29, 2017, City Council passed By-law 267-2017 implementing its decision on new ward boundaries for the City of Toronto.

At its meeting of April 26 to 28, 2017, the Council of the City of Toronto intends to enact technical corrections to By-law 267-2017 respecting the ward boundaries of the City. The technical corrections do not alter the new ward boundaries adopted by City Council. No revisions will be made to the map of the new ward boundaries as a result of the technical corrections.


If the technical corrections are enacted by City Council, a notice of passing will be issued within 15 days of the date of passing.

More information about the process leading up to the decision can be found:
