The Shelter, Support & Housing Administration Division is the service manager for housing and homelessness services in Toronto. The Division funds and oversees community agencies to deliver services, such as:
- Emergency shelter and supports
- Street outreach
- 24-hour respite
- Housing stability services (for example, drop-ins, supports to daily living, housing help and eviction prevention)
- The largest part of this portfolio is the funding and oversight of social housing in Toronto including direct management of access to subsidized housing through a centralized waiting list.
- The Division’s top priority is to ensure that vulnerable people can access temporary accommodation when they need it, and that permanent housing options are available, accessible and sustainable.
