TSN Strategic Planning Survey 2019

At this time, the TSN Board of Directors is embarking on a planning process in order to develop a strategic plan that will guide the organization over the coming 3 - 5 years. As a member based organization, the perspectives and ideas of TSN's members is critical to the planning process and over the coming month we will be reaching out in different ways to consult with TSN members.

As a first step, the TSN sent a survey out in mid-August to be completed by our membership. The feedback we received from those surveys was invaluable and guided the all-day strategic planning session for the TSN Board of Directors.

We are hoping to hold a meeting for our membership by the end of 2019 where we will present our new strategic plan. More details will be available shortly.

Trans Safety in Shelters Project

The Toronto Shelter Network and Women’s Sector table are in the beginning stages of the Trans Safety in Shelters project. We are hoping to better understand the issues that the trans population face in the shelter system, and come up with recommendations on how to improve their safety.
