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 Shelter Network hosted its Fourth Annual Conference this past October. As with previous years, we had a day filled with thought provoking and educational plenary and workshop sessions. Please see the Events Page for more information.
In the wake of the formation of the Shelter and Housing Justice Network (SHJN), the Toronto Shelter Network (TSN) supports a call to action in order to address the crisis of homelessness in our city. Please see our Press Release & Statement page from the full statement.
