The City of Ottawa will have new ward boundaries for the 2022 Municipal Elections and 2022-2026 Term of Council. There will be one new ward and new names for six existing wards.
During its October 13, 2021 meeting, City Council considered the Ottawa Ward Boundary Review 2020 - Implementation Report regarding the implementation of the new ward boundary structure established through the Ottawa Ward Boundary Review 2020 and subsequent order from the Ontario Land Tribunal.
With the new 24-ward structure set to take effect for the 2022 Municipal Elections, Council approved renaming six existing wards to reflect geographical areas and community names. Council also established a name and number for the new ward (Ward 24 – Barrhaven East). All of the City’s current wards will keep the same ward numbers for the 2022 Municipal Elections.
The ward boundaries, names and numbers set out below will serve as the basis for administering the municipal elections on October 24, 2022 and will be effective as of November 15, 2022. As outlined in the Ward Boundaries and Council Composition By-law, the 2022-2026 Term of Council will be composed of the Mayor, elected by general vote, and 24 other members, elected on the basis of one Member for each of the 24 wards.
