Better Ballots Toronto was a community-driven dialogue about local democracy, that took place in 2010

We faciliated a city-wide dialogue exploring fourteen possible reforms for our local elections. We held four town hall meetings across Toronto, hosted a mayoral debate and secured an enormous amount of media coverage about the need for democratic renewal at City Hall, including a front-cover story in Eye Weekly.

We also launched the Local Choice campaign, which asked the province to loosen regulations in the Municipal Elections Act which were preventing cities from modernising their local elections.

We want to thank all of our sponsors and community partners, listed below, for their support.

A new national campaign for municipal reform, Better Ballots Canada, can be found here.
