Community Council Boundaries Change December 1
  
The City of Toronto's community council structure will change on December 1 to
reflect the City's new 44 wards established by the province.

The new community councils replace the former community councils of East York,
Etobicoke, North York, Scarborough, Toronto and York. Community councils
provide a forum for residents to deal with local issues such as neighbourhood
planning and transportation at a grassroots level.

Toronto City Council approved the six new community councils at its October 3
meeting. Each council represents several electoral wards and between 300,000 to
600,000 residents. The new councils have been assigned interim names and
meeting locations by City Council. The incoming City Council will decide on
permanent names and locations early in 2001.

The new structure is the result of input the City received during public
consultations. Dates and times of community council meetings will be posted on

commencement of the new term of City Council.
