         Ottawa Ward Boundary Review

A comprehensive review of Ottawa's ward boundaries is set to begin November 17. The Ottawa Ward Boundary Review will be led by the consultant team of Dr. Gary Davidson and Beate Bowron, and supported by City staff. Working with Council and the citizens of Ottawa, the consultants will explore options for revising the current ward structure to address future growth trends and achieve effective representation. 

Citizens will have the opportunity to learn more about the Review, and to express what changes in the City's Ward structure would improve the effective representation of their community.

The consultations are scheduled on the following dates, with informal discussions starting at 7 p.m., followed by a public meeting at 7:30 p.m.:

  • Wednesday, November 17:  Kinburn Client Service Centre, 5670 Carp Road

  • Monday, November 22:  Carleton Golf & Yacht Club, Anniversary Room, 6627 Marina  Drive
