This Thursday – Toronto Ward Boundary Review – Public Meeting

Posted on January 5, 2015

In Ward 14, this Thursday, January 8 at Parkdale Public Library 6PM – 9PM,1303 Queen St W.

Residents of Toronto and East York are invited to provide their input as part of a review of the size and shape of Toronto’s electoral wards. The Toronto Ward Boundary Review is intended to ensure that each person in Toronto has equitable representation at City Council.

Toronto’s significant growth has resulted in wards with populations above or below the average of 60,958, with some wards 30 to 50 per cent above the average. The goal of the review is to ensure that the number of electors in every ward is similar to the number in other wards throughout the city.

The Toronto Ward Boundary Review’s next series of public meetings will take place in the Toronto and East York Community Council area starting next week. The meetings will be held on Wednesday, January 7, Thursday, January 8, and Saturday, January 10.

Wednesday’s meeting will be held at S. Walter Stewart Library, 170 Memorial Park Ave., Thursday’s meeting at Parkdale Library, 1303 Queen St. W., and Saturday’s meeting at Trinity St. Paul’s Church, 427 Bloor St. W.

These three meetings are part of a two-stage public consultation process. Additional information, including meeting times, locations and the full calendar of the review’s public consultation meetings, is available athttp://www.drawthelines.ca/

The review will take into consideration:
• the number of people living in each ward
• geographic communities of interest and neighbourhoods
• major physical and natural boundaries, and
• population trends.

The City of Toronto has oversight of the Toronto Ward Boundary Review. The study is being conducted by an independent team of consultants that is responsible for making sure the process is not influenced by political interests.
