Provincial Bill 5
On August 14, 2018, the Government of Ontario passed legislation that reduces the number of City of Toronto wards from 47 to 25, aligning with current federal and provincial electoral ridings.
The October 22 Municipal Election will be conducted based on the new 25 ward model.
How is Ward 25 Changing?
Ward 25 will now be a part of Ward 15.
I have attached two maps below to highlight the changes between the Ward 25 boundaries and the new Ward 15 boundaries.
As you can see, the majority of the old Ward 25 will fit into the new Ward 15 boundaries, exclusive of the boundary line moving west from Don Mills Road to Leslie Street.
The new Ward 15 - Don Valley West will be roughly double the size of the original Ward 25, increasing from 58,000 to over 100,000 residents. Ward 15 will include the majority of the current Ward 25, the current Ward 26, and a large piece of the old Ward 22 east of Mount Pleasant Road.
To help residents and businesses find their new ward, the City has created the MyVote app which provides Torontonians information about City Council wards based on their home address, including the candidates that will be running in that ward in the 2018 Municipal Election.
A complete List of Candidates is also available and is updated in real-time.
