New Community Council Boundaries Options – Comments must be submitted by Friday May 25, 2018

What do Community Councils do?

Community Council responsibilities include making recommendations and decisions on local planning and development, as well as neighbourhood matters including traffic plans and parking regulations. Community Councils report to City Council but they also have final decision-making power on certain items, such as traffic and parking, fence by-law exemptions and appointments to local boards and Business Improvement Areas.

Why do we need new Community Council boundaries?

Community Councils are made up of groupings of City wards and their membership comprises the City Councillors of those wards. Each Community Council represents a geographic area of the city.

Toronto City Council must adopt new Community Council boundaries because the City’s ward boundaries will change December 1, 2018. Currently, each of the four Community Councils have 10 to 12 wards, however the total number of wards is increasing from 44 to 47. The old Community Council boundaries won’t line up with the new ward boundaries and adjustments are needed to accommodate the 3 new wards.
