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.
Many City Council ward boundaries have changed as a result of the new model. In some cases, entirely new City Council wards have been created, with only 7 City Council ward boundaries remaining the same. To help you find your new ward, the City has created the MYVOTEapp which provides Torontonians information about City Council wards based on an individual address and the candidates that will be running in that ward in the 2018 Municipal Election.
The Building Industry and Land Development Association (BILD) and the Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB) have come together to shed light on voters' priorities and issues for the upcoming municipal elections. Together, BILD and TREB represent all facets of the real estate industry. This is the second joint release of municipal election related poll results by the organizations.
