Shelter Design and Technical Guidelines

The City of Toronto has officially released their new Shelter Design and Technical Guidelines this past week. The 277 page document that we authored for them was substantially complete a year ago. Over the last year we updated it to include initial guidance on measures related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

As a living document intended to offer best practices in the design of shelters for people in Toronto experiencing homelessness, (which has been accelerated by the pandemic), we will updating the document on at least an annual basis moving forward.
