Welcome to the Toronto Shelter Network (TSN)!  The TSN is made of Toronto's shelter providers.  Together, we support emergency shelters across Toronto to more effectively meet the needs of people experiencing homelessness.


The Toronto Shelter Standards (TSS) provides City of Toronto-funded shelter providers and clients with a clear set of expectations, guidelines and minimum requirements for the provision of shelter services in Toronto. All emergency and transitional shelters funded or directly operated by the City of Toronto are required to adhere to the TSS. 

The Toronto Hostels Training Centre (THTC) is a partner of the Toronto Shelter Network. The THTC develops and provides training that meets the needs of shelter and hostel staff.

The 3rd Annual TSN Conference was held on Friday October 20, 2017.  Please click here for more details
