There are more than 8,000 people experiencing homelessness in Toronto. New homes with support services are urgently needed to ensure everyone has a warm, safe place to call home. City Council adopted the COVID-19 Housing and Homelessness Recovery Response Plan to expedite the creation of 2,000 new supportive homes by the end of 2022 with the support of the federal and provincial governments. To provide this rapid response, the City uses either innovative modular construction on City-owned land or acquires existing buildings (such as hotels or motels) that need renovations. The City also partners with, funds, and supports non-profit partners to acquire new properties or develop their own land to create new supportive housing.

The City and its partners are on track to exceed these supportive housing targets using capital funding from the City and federal government. In May 2022, the Ontario Government committed $27 million in additional operating funding for supportive housing costs associated with buildings set to open in 2022, and committed to partnering with the City on our 24 Month Housing and Homelessness Recovery Plan to provide ongoing operating funding for supportive housing units set to come online by the end of 2023.

This page lists the recently announced supportive housing projects that are being led and supported by the City of Toronto.
