We are reviewing Guelph’s Council composition and ward boundaries to understand if our Council and wards are effective, equitable and an accurate reflection of who lives here. This review will have a lasting impact on how you’re represented at the municipal level, now and into the future.

In this last phase of engagement, we need your help to review four ward boundary options and the suggested council composition for each. Engagement is open from April 6 to April 20.

You are in the right place because everything you need to participate in this project can be found on this project web page.

This information will be used to select final options and write a report that will be available online on June 10. Council will meet to discuss the report and its findings, and hear delegations, on June 21, with a final decision made on June 23.

Please feel free to continue reviewing the findings and options presented by the consultants throughout this page.
