We are writing to ask for your help in gathering input from local residents to help strengthen the City of Toronto’s community engagement process for new shelter and other services for people experiencing homelessness.
The City is currently undertaking a third-party review of its community engagement process for new shelter and other services for people experiencing homelessness. This review will identify opportunities to enhance this process, to make sure that all new shelter and other services for people experiencing homelessness are set up for success.
The City is inviting local residents and businesses to share their perspectives. All residents are encouraged to share their ideas, whether or not they have participated in the community engagement process or live near a shelter or a service for people experiencing homelessness.
There are two ways residents and businesses can provide input into the Community Engagement Review process:
1. Participate in an anonymous online survey
2. Participate in a virtual focus group

We have attached an email template that you can copy and paste to provide residents with everything they need to know to participate. Please send to your mailing lists and encourage sharing with their networks.
We would be very appreciative if you could help get the word out. If you have any questions about the project or the outreach to local residents, you can get in touch with Amber Krogel, one of the consultants supporting the Community Engagement Review, at .
