The City will be conducting the second round of public consultations for the Ward Boundary Review, and residents are invited to provide their feedback on this important matter. This round will result in a Recommendations Report that will be considered by the Finance and Economic Development Committee and City Council later this year in December.
The City will host several virtual public consultation sessions in September to enable residents to participate online or by phone through Zoom. Three of the sessions will invite comments from participants from all over the city, while another three sessions will focus on the urban, suburban and rural parts of the city.
Registration is required for these sessions, which can be done online here, kindly note that registration will open on August 19, once the public consultation period officially opens. Registrants will receive an email with a Zoom passcode and login information.
