As part of our COVID-19 response for people experiencing homelessness, the City has activated more than 30 new programs in temporary locations including hotel programs to increase physical distancing in our existing shelter system. We have now resumed daily point-in-time reporting on the number of clients in our shelter system. This snapshot will be updated daily and represents occupancy on the day listed below.

Work is underway to update our data systems to accurately reflect current capacities at each of our existing and new shelter programs and we are working to be able to resume daily reporting on new capacities as soon as possible. To access an emergency shelter space, call Central Intake at 416-338-4766, 1-877-338-3398.
