There are approximately 7,800 people experiencing homelessness in Toronto. New affordable and supportive housing is urgently needed to ensure everyone has a warm, safe place to call home. In December 2020, City Council approved a staff report which outlines a plan for the City to deliver a minimum of 1,248 supportive homes in 2021, subject to availability of operating funding for support services. These housing projects aim to provide a rapid, dignified response to connect people experiencing homelessness with affordable homes and support services. 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.

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