The City of Toronto has purchased the property at 65 Dundas St. East (formerly the Bond Hotel) to respond to the urgent need for permanent affordable homes. The existing building will be renovated to offer:

  • homes for a range of incomes, including some deeply affordable homes with supports
  • studio and one-bedroom apartments with a private bathroom and kitchenette
  • at least 15 per cent of the apartments will be accessible (e.g. washrooms with roll-in shower, vanity, toilet area, and grab bars and barrier-free paths throughout the suite)
  • amenities such as shared laundry, a dining area, communal space, and multiple programming and tenant support spaces.

The temporary shelter program at 65 Dundas St. E. is now closed. This program closed in gradual phases between September 2022 and June 2024 to enable renovations to take place while continuing to provide much-needed shelter space. Staff on site worked with all shelter residents to support them to move into housing or to another shelter with supports.
