Toronto currently has 44 wards, each with a City Councillor. In December 2018, most wards will change their boundaries and three new wards will be added so that the City will then have 47 wards.
The City currently has 4 Community Councils which are made up of groupings of those City wards. Each Community Council represents a geographic area of the city, and its members are the City Councillors of those wards. Community Council responsibilities include making recommendations and decisions on local planning and development, as well as neighbourhood matters including traffic plans and parking regulations.
City Council must adopt new Community Councils to align with the new ward boundaries and accommodate the 3 new wards.
The City Manager is inviting your feedback on the features and considerations that would result in effective Community Councils for the city. Staff are also seeking input on how best to balance population growth projections and the distribution of agenda items across Community Councils.
This feedback will inform the City Manager's recommendations to Council's Executive Committee. When the report is published, members of the public can sign up to speak at Executive Committee by contacting the clerk at firstname.lastname@example.org or registering online at www.toronto.ca/council. A summary of the public input will be posted online with the report to City Council.
