  1. These changes are federal only. While after the 2001 federal changes the Ontario Legislature voted to mimic federal adjustments, that legislation did not make new provincial changes automatic each time there are federal changes.

    Similarly, ward changes are not automatic with each federal adjustment. The province could decide to change the TO wards by amending the City of Toronto Act, 2006, or city council could decide to change the wards (this authority was given to them under the CTA, 2006).

    • Interesting. Do you know what happened provincially and municipally the last time the federal electoral districts were adjusted, which would have been about 10 years ago)?
