Ward Boundary Review 2013

The City of Markham reviewed its ward boundaries in 2013. Markham had grown a lot since the last review in 2005. As a result, some wards had many more people than others. This review recommended that Markham change the wards to reflect population differences across the City. The review looked at:

  • Representation by population
  • Protection of communities of interest and neighbourhoods
  • Present and future population trends
  • Physical features as natural boundaries
  • The overriding principle of “effective representation"

Here is the interim report, and here is the final report. Markham City Council passed the Ward Boundary Review Bylaw 2013-29 on March 19, 2013.
