Final Ward Boundaries for City of Toronto Established by Provincial Regulation
  
On March 20, 2000, the provincial government issued Ontario Regulation 191/00,
establishing the City of Toronto's new ward structure, effective December 1,
2000.

City Council adopted the 44 single-member wards on January 19, 2000, in
response to the provincial government's Bill 25, the Fewer Municipal
Politicians Act, 1999. These wards are based on the current 22
federal/provincial ridings in the City. The new ward boundaries reduce the
number of City councillors, from 57 to 44 and take effect for the next
municipal election, November 13, 2000.

Toronto's City Clerk sent the City's ward boundary recommendations to the
Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing, Tony Clement, who has final
authority under the Act to prescribe the number and boundaries of the wards.
The final ward boundaries are now set in a Provincial Regulation, released by
the Minister.
