Last Updated May 1, 2018 at 11:45 am EST

John Tory will be seeking another term as the mayor of Toronto.

Tory signed his registration papers on Tuesday morning at City Hall.

Hopeful city councilors and school board members were also on hand to register. The final day to file papers is July 27.

A list of candidates will be provided here.

Community advocate Sarah Climenhaga submitted her nomination papers to challenge Tory for the mayor’s job on Tuesday morning.

“I’m running for mayor because I think this city is at a crossroads and we need to change direction in a more progressive and faster moving direction,” she said on Tuesday.

Since the last election, the size of council has increased from 44 to 47 wards. Last month, CityNews reported council could see up to 10 new faces this fall as some current city councillors hope to make the move to provincial politics in June.

There were also boundary changes, with three new wards up for grabs and no incumbents to lead the pack.

The municipal election will be held on Oct. 22.
