Updated demographic profiles available for Toronto's wards based on latest Census data
City of Toronto staff have created updated ward profiles to include the new 25 wards that come into effect December 1.

The ward profiles highlight key demographic factors using charts and detailed tables on a variety of measures, including the following:
• population by age group
• dwellings by type, tenure and period of construction
• families and households
• immigration and mobility
• language group
• ethnic origin and visible minorities
• education and labour force, and
• income and shelter cost.

The ward profiles use information from the 2016 long-form Census as well as the 2011 Census and the 2011 National Household Survey to enable local comparisons to be made over time.

The City of Toronto’s 2018 municipal election will be conducted using a new 25-ward model that becomes effective on December 1 when the new 2018-2022 term of City Council begins. These ward profiles are available at

The ward profiles for the current 44 wards and the previously adopted 47 wards also remain online.

Profiles for the current 44-ward model are available at

Profiles for the previously adopted 47-ward model are available at

Data for the 25-ward model, 44-ward model and 47-ward model is also available on the City's Open Data portal at
