August 18, 2018 Update: **NOTE

Bill 5, the Better Local Government Act, 2018, was passed by the Government of Ontario and received Royal Assent on August 14, 2018. More details about TDSB Trustee candidates and wards will be posted to the City of Toronto elections page. Click here to go to the City of Toronto website.

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.
