New Ward Boundaries: How do they affect you?

Sault Ste. Marie Civic Centre

Sault Ste. Marie’s Deputy CAO and City Clerk, Malcolm White, dropped by the ONNtv Studio to talk about what Saultites need to be aware of in the upcoming municipal election in terms of the adjusted ward boundaries.

This year, our wards go from 6 to 5, from 12 city councillors to 10.

The new boundaries are as follows;

  • Ward 1 – 16,886 people, from the city’s eastern limits west to Churchill/Lake street
  • Ward 2 – 13,881 people, downtown from the waterfront to McNabb, west to Cathcart and along the rail line
  • Ward 3 – 14,507 people, north from McNabb Street west to Peoples Road and further to the western boundary of Old Goulais Bay Road
  • Ward 4 – 16,095 people, from Pim Street to Goulais Avenue, down Fourth Line to the southern rail tracks
  • Ward 5 – 11,999 people, from the Sault’s westernmost boundary to Old Goulais Bay Road and Goulais Avenue’s easternmost border
