Municipal elections were held in Toronto, Canada, on January 1, 1932. William James Stewart was acclaimed in his bid to be reelected mayor.

William James Stewart had been elected mayor the previous year. No one chose to run against him and he was acclaimed as mayor, the first such acclamation since 1921.

There was one change on the Board of Control: Controller Albert Hacker was ousted as ex-mayor Sam McBride returned to municipal politics and won a spot.
