NEW WARD 11 – University Rosedale
On August 22nd, I filed a notice of Ward Change from Ward24 to the new Ward 11 whose boundaries are essentially the same as the Federal Riding of University Rosedale. This means the boundaries of new Ward 11 are as follows : commencing at the intersection of College Street with Bay Street; thence northerly along Bay Street to Charles Street West; thence easterly along said street to Yonge Street; thence southerly along said street to Charles Street East; thence easterly along said street to Mount Pleasant Road; thence northerly along said road to Bloor Street East; thence easterly along said street to Sherbourne Street North; thence northerly along said street to Rosedale Valley Road; thence generally easterly along said road and its production to the Don River; thence generally northerly along said river to Pottery Road; thence northwesterly and southwesterly along said road to Bayview Avenue; thence generally northerly and northwesterly along said avenue to the Canadian Pacific Railway situated northwesterly of Nesbitt Drive; thence southwesterly along said railway to the Beltline Trail situated in the Moore Park Ravine; thence generally northwesterly along said trail to the southerly boundary of the Mount Pleasant Cemetery; thence generally westerly along said boundary to the northwesterly production of the Don River Tributary situated easterly of Avoca Avenue; thence generally southeasterly along said production and said tributary to the easterly production of Rosehill Avenue; thence westerly along said production and Rosehill Avenue to the westerly boundary of the Rosehill Reservoir; thence southerly along said boundary to Jackes Avenue; thence westerly along said avenue to Yonge Street; thence southerly along said street to the Canadian Pacific Railway; thence generally westerly along said railway to Ossington Avenue; thence southerly along said avenue to Dundas Street West; thence generally easterly along said street to Yonge Street; thence northerly along said street to College Street; thence westerly along said street to the point of commencement.

On August 14, 2018, the Bill 5, the Better Local Government Act, 2018, was passed by the Government of Ontario and received Royal Assent. The Act reduces the number of Toronto wards from 47 to 25, and extends the nomination period for councillor and school board trustee nominations. Mayoral nominations were not extended; the nomination deadline for the office of mayor was July 27. The new 25 ward boundaries align with the current federal and provincial electoral ridings, with minor adjustment to stay within geographic boundaries of Toronto.
The City Clerk will continue to administer the election in accordance with the current provincial legislation. The City’s election day is on October 22, 2018. Read more here.
New Wards 10 (Spadina Fort York) and 11 (University Rosedale) encompass former New Ward 25.
The City of Toronto’s ward boundaries were changed from the existing 44 wards to 47. The new 47 ward model was to be used to conduct the 2018 general municipal election.
