Latest Update on COVID-19

Our COVID-19 Safety measures have been extended to November 16, 2020 Click here for the full COVID-19 update. We will keep you informed as the situation unfolds. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

On the advice of Public Health authorities and in compliance with City of Toronto restrictions on gatherings and permitted events, we have cancelled all events across the organization. Our flagship event, Community Rocks, has been postponed from November 2020 to November 2021.

Family Visits: In keeping with recent provincial guidelines, all visits to CLTO sites must be scheduled with as much notice as possible. Effective immediately, we are limiting indoor visits to CLTO residential sites to “essential visitors” only. Essential visitors may include family members providing care, healthcare providers, and maintenance staff. Where possible and practical, these visits should be conducted outdoors while observing physical distancing, hand hygiene, and active screening measures. CLTO will provide masks and any other personal protective equipment necessary to keep these visits safe. All other visits must be conducted outside. Essential overnight absences will continue as they have been since the summer. Outings from CLTO residential sites will be limited to essential trips, such as medical appointments or school.

Respite: We have opened after-school respite programs at three locations for a small number of participants. This program is operating at significantly reduced capacity due to public health restrictions. All participants in after-school respite programs are subject to active screening requirements and appropriate guidelines regarding physical distancing, hand hygiene, and other public health measures. The program is capped at current participants in accordance with public health guidelines.
Overnight respite programs remain closed across CLTO until November 16, 2020. This includes programs at Lawson, McMillan, TREADD, and Ennerdale

With the second wave upon us, we must all be prepared for a return of some of the measures that governed our lives earlier this year. Basic public health measures like physical distancing and hand washing have never been more important. We remain laser-focused on keeping the people we support and our staff safe. Community Living Toronto staff are trained and experienced in the measures required to meet this challenge.

Our main offices are closed. This includes our head office and central regional office (20 Spadina Rd), our Etobicoke regional office (295 The West Mall), Scarborough regional office (1712 Ellesmere Rd), and North York regional office (1122 Finch Ave West). *Only essential staff are permitted entry to our offices, and anyone entering must wear a mask and be actively screened before proceeding into the building. All in-person training remains suspended across the Association. These measures will remain in effect until November 16, 2020
