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. If you are interested in joining our working group, please contact Lindsay at

TSN Shelter Provider Health Survey 2017

The TSN undertook this survey with its members to better understand the current state of health service access within shelters and to identify priority health needs. The aim is to use this information to help inform future activities including shelter/health service partnership development, training and health service planning for shelters.
