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.

Phase 2: CLOSED - Current ward boundary issues

4 months

Take a look at the map of Guelph's ward boundaries as they have been drawn since 1991.

Set aside politics and councillors and think about the principle of effective representation. 

Where on this map are there issues that need to be addressed when re-drawing ward boundaries in Guelph in 2021? What specific physical/geographic features do we need be aware of? Where are the communities of interest/neighbourhoods located?

_____

In the upper left corner, click on the (+) symbol to drag a pin onto the map. You can add an image if you like and answer some questions, but don't forget to click 'submit' when you are done.
