August 10, 2018 Update:

As a result of the proposed changes to Toronto city council (from 47 to 25), the TDSB created several different options for the trustee ward boundaries. On August 9, 2018 the TDSB announced that option 1.1 from their report (see below) was selected and approved. Important Note: (see above **Note.) These new boundaries will only apply if there is a reduction to city council (to 25). In other words, if city council remains at 47, then the existing TDSB wards will remain as is and the new wards listed below will not apply. We will update our website when we have more details.
