Municipal Wards Boundary Review Update

The Saskatoon Municipal Wards Commission is seeking insight and information from citizens of Saskatoon as the Commission looks to establish new ward boundaries for the municipal/school boards' elections in fall 2020 because of population growth and shifts since the 2016 election.

The City of Saskatoon is divided into ten wards.  The Cities Act stipulates that each ward must contain approximately the same population, with ward populations varying by no more than 10% from the average ward population (the City's total population divided by the ten wards).

Currently, the populations of Ward 7 and Ward 10 exceed the 10% variance while the populations of Ward 5 and Ward 8 fall below the threshold.  Accordingly, the Municipal Wards Commission will establish new ward boundaries to be in effect for the city's municipal election and school boards' elections in fall 2020.  Of note, reconfiguring the ward boundaries to ensure all ten comply to the legislated population range will affect the boundaries of other wards as well in all three options.

This means that for the 2020 municipal and school boards' election, Ward 8's boundaries WILL change.

Ward Boundary Review Underway
Early planning for the 2020 municipal/school boards’ elections to be held in fall 2020 is already underway. One of the first steps is to review the boundaries of the ten current wards to ensure they all have equal population numbers, according to The Cities Act.
 
Changing four ward boundaries (Wards 5, 7, 8 and 10) to ensure all ten wards comply with the legislated population range could also affect the boundaries of other wards. The Community Association you belong to, or the City Councillor you've had to-date could change, we know this is important to residents.
