Public invited to information session on recommendations of the Toronto Ward Boundary Review
  
The Toronto Ward Boundary Review Report – a third-party consultants' report that reviewed the size and shape of Toronto's wards – will be presented at a public information session on Monday, May 16. The presentation will be held at 1:30 p.m. in Committee Room 2 at Toronto City Hall, 100 Queen St. W.

The study was carried out by a team of consultants that conducted an objective review and consultation process over two years. The consultants' presentation will outline the Toronto Ward Boundary Review process and the recommendations for changes to Toronto's ward boundaries that the Executive Committee will consider.

The City of Toronto Act provides City Council with authority to make changes to its ward boundaries. In 2013, City Council directed the City Manager to retain a third-party consultant to undertake a ward boundary review in preparation for the 2018 municipal election. The goal of the review is to ensure that the population of every ward across Toronto is similar in size.

The public information session will coincide with the delivery of the report and recommendations to the Executive Committee on Monday. The recommendations will also be available on the City Clerk's web page on May 16 at about noon, when the agenda for the May 24 Executive Committee meeting is posted at http://bit.ly/1TMFJsZ.

Toronto is Canada's largest city, the fourth largest in North America, and home to a diverse population of about 2.8 million people. It is a global centre for business, finance, arts and culture and is consistently ranked one of the world's most livable cities.
