The Toronto City Council is the governing body of the city of Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
For ease of electoral division, wards are based upon the city's provincial electoral districts, with each district divided into two city wards. (The provincial boundaries were redistributed in 2007 along the lines of the new federal boundaries; as of the 2010 election, a similar adjustment which would increase the number of councillors from 44 to 45 or 46 has not been made, so the districts remain slightly uncoordinated.)
The city council has 45 members: 44 ward councillors plus the mayor. The city posts agendas for council and committee meetings.
The salary for the mayor was $167,769.94 for 2012. The salary for a city councillor was $102,608 for 2012.
