Ward Boundary Review

Consultation has concluded

Update: The Oshawa Ward Boundaries for the 2018 elections have been chosen

At a Special Council Meeting on Thursday, June 15, Council received the final recommendations report concerning the Oshawa Ward Boundary Review from the Consultant Team of Watson and Associates Economists Ltd. and Dr. Robert Williams.

The final report recommended two ward boundary options for consideration, both of which aligned with the guiding principles underlying the review, and received the majority of support from residents who participated in the community consultation process.

Following several delegations from the public and debate amongst members, Council selected the following ward boundary layout as follows:Image of the new City of Oshawa wards that will be used in the 2018 municipal elections.

  • Rural Oshawa, the community of Taunton and emerging urban growth areas in Kedron and Columbus are represented under Proposed Ward 1, which is bound, by Highway 407, Ritson Road and Taunton Road to the south.
  • Ward 2 extends from Highway 407 to Rossland Road west of Ritson Road and includes the communities of Windfields, Northwood, Samac, Northglen and the majority of Centennial.
  • Ward 3 extends from Taunton Road to Olive Avenue east of Ritson Road and Wilson Road and includes the communities of Pinecrest, Eastdale and the northern portion of Donevan.
  • The communities of McLaughlin and O'Neill, northern areas of Vanier and Central as well as Downtown Oshawa are included in Proposed Ward 4, which extends north-south from Rossland Road to Gibb Street/Olive Avenue west of Wilson Road.
  • Ward 5 extends south from Gibb Street and Olive Avenue.

The goal strives to achieve reasonable population equality in 2017, which will encourage a more favourable ward balance by 2026.
