The City of Saskatoon is divided into ten wards. Boundaries of these current wards were established by the Municipal Wards Commission in 2016, in accordance with provisions of The Cities Act. The Act stipulates that each ward must contain –as nearly as is reasonably practicable– the same population and that ward populations cannot vary by more than 10% from the quotient, which is obtained by dividing the city's total population by the number of wards into which the city is divided. Ward boundaries are also used by the Public School Board for trustee elections.
According to 2018 population statistics, the population of ward 7 and ward 10 now exceeds the 10% variance, while the population of ward 5 (Silverwood Heights) and ward 8 is below. 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.
Interested citizens are invited to review current ward boundaries and projected growth areas, and present their thoughts at the first of two public consultations:
