Emergency Housing

Emergency housing is for people or families that need short-term housing.  Examples of situations could include: being homeless; facing eviction by a landlord or a domestic crisis, such as being hurt or harmed at home.  Some shelters are for women that are living with partners that are hurting them.  Click here to learn more about domestic abuse.  In addition to providing a place to live, many shelters also offer services such as counselling and support, and referrals to other services in the community, such as legal and health services.

Each emergency shelter will have its own rules about who is eligible to stay. Some shelters are open to all, while some are restricted to certain groups, gender, families, or youth.
