New Ward Boundary
Joe Mihevc is running to represent the St. Paul’s community regardless of the final boundary decision.
The ward boundaries have long been scheduled to change for this election. In 2017, the City of Toronto changed the boundaries and increased the number of wards to 47 in order to better reflect population distribution and provide for more democratic representation. This summer, the Province of Ontario passed new legislation shrinking the number of wards to 25. The provincial law is currently subject to a challenge at the Ontario Superior Court.
As we await the Court’s decision, the current legal boundary is the riding of St. Paul’s, which encompasses most of the areas formerly known as Wards 21 and 22, as well as a portion of the former Ward 15.
The boundary for “Ward 12 – Toronto St. Paul’s” is as follows:
- In the north: south side of Broadway Ave. from Mount Pleasant to Yonge; south on Yonge to Eglinton Ave. E.; south side of Eglinton between Yonge and Dufferin Rd.
- In the east: the west side of Mount Pleasant Rd. from Broadway Ave. to Moore Ave.; the ravine pathway to David Balfour Park; the north side of Jackes Ave.; south on Yonge St. to the C.P.R. rail line
- In the south: to the north of the CP Rail corridor;
- In the west: from the CP Rail corridor, the east side of Ossington Ave. and Winona Dr. to Holland Park Ave.; the north side of Holland Park to Oakwood Ave. and the north side of Rogers Rd. from Oakwood to Dufferin; the east side of Dufferin St. up to Eglinton Ave. W.
