Update on City of Toronto homelessness services
City of Toronto staff continue to actively monitor and respond to the need for homelessness services across the city. Providing sufficient services for everyone who requests them remains the focus.
With increased demand for services during the recent extreme cold weather period in Toronto, services continued to be busy yesterday and overnight. Warming Centres were opened on a temporary basis as an extra precaution and the warming centre services at Regent Park Community Centre will remain available until further notice while the Metro Hall warming centre services will now end.
As the overflow warming centre service established Saturday, January 6 at Wellesley Community Centre was not required (there was one person there at 4 a.m. Sunday morning), services there were ended on Sunday and the facility was returned to its primary purpose of community-based programming.
