The City of Ottawa is undertaking a city-wide review of the ward boundaries and residents are invited to participate in the public engagement process. The ward boundaries were last modified in a major review in 2005 and, over the past 15 years, Ottawa’s population has grown significantly. Population growth across the city and high rates of intensification in urban areas have affected the population distribution across wards. As urban wards continue to intensify, we must ensure existing and new residents are adequately represented at City Hall.
I encourage you to visit the Engage Ottawa website to learn more about the Ward Boundary Review engagement process and to complete a survey.
