There is a need to increase Toronto’s shelter capacity. Key drivers for new shelter capacity are City Council’s direction to open 1,000 new permanent shelter beds and the George Street Revitalization project.
New locations will pilot a new shelter service model to help with the integration of services within their local communities. Residents can find information below about new shelter developments and local initiatives such as Community Liaison Committees to help integrate new services into communities across the city.
