The Toronto City Council is the governing body of Toronto.
Members represent wards throughout the city, and are known as councillors.
For ease of electoral division, wards are based upon the city's provincial electoral districts, with each district (or "riding") divided into two city wards.
All members of Toronto city council, except the mayor, serve on a community council. The city is divided into four community councils, each of which has the authority to make certain decisions of a purely local nature, and to make recommendations to city council on matters that surpass the community council's authority. These are denoted in the chart as a letter next to the councillor's ward number:
