Recreational Facilities Update: Shower & Warming Access for the Homeless

By December 2, 2020Covid-19, Issues

As a result of the lockdown, our Recreation facilities have been closed for our regular services, including relief from the cold and our Shower Pass program for homeless members of our community.  Starting this Saturday December 5th, we will be providing limited access to three of our community centres for these purposes.  Shower and lobby facilities will be available daily from Monday through Saturday, 1-4pm, at the following locations:

  • Malton Community Centre
  • Meadowvale Community Centre
  • Port Credit Arena

The Library’s Open Window Hub will be providing hygiene kits and referral resources will be made available.  The Recreation team will continue to monitor demand for these services and we are prepared to expand access if required.  In the case of an Extreme Cold Weather alert, we are also prepared to extend hours at these locations to serve as a warming centre.
