Trustee Ward Boundary Review

The Toronto District School Board is undertaking a Ward Boundary Review (WBR) for its Trustee wards in order to align with the new City of Toronto wards recently enacted by Toronto City Council. The City’s new ward structure changes the boundaries of most existing wards and increases the number from 44 to 47. Therefore, the TDSB cannot maintain its existing Trustee wards and is beginning a Ward Boundary Review. See here for a map of the current TDSB Trustee Wards with the new City of Toronto Wards.

The TDSB has commissioned an outside consulting group to lead the Ward Boundary Review. The consultants are developing a number of options for the new Trustee Wards and are soliciting feedback on the options.

How Are Trustee Ward Boundaries Determined?

The three most important factors that contribute to the determination of Trustee ward boundaries are:

1. The number of Trustees allowed by the Province: the TDSB is allowed up to 22 Trustees, based on the number of public school supporters (electors). 

2. City ward boundaries: Trustee wards must follow City of Toronto ward boundaries. A Trustee ward could be a single City ward or a combination of City wards.

3. Geographic continuity: Trustee wards must be geographically contiguous.

Once these criteria have been met, other factors can be considered:
•   The number of schools and/or students in a Trustee ward
•   The number of public school supporters (electors) in a 
  Trustee ward
•   The population of a Trustee ward
•   The future growth of a Trustee ward

What is this Ward Boundary Review NOT About?
The TDSB Ward Boundary Review is not

about TDSB operations, including determining school catchment areas, school closings or how Trustees perform their duties. The review is also not about how the TDSB is governed, or whether Trustees should be elected at-large. This review focuses only on re-aligning the boundaries of Trustee wards.
