If you do not have immigration status, or are waiting for decision on your case from Citizenship & Immigration Canada, there are places to get services such as health care, legal advice, counselling, or shelter. This guide is intended to help you find the available resources within the city.

This booklet provides information about community services and programs in the city of Toronto that are accessible to residents who lack secure immigration status.

All attempts were made to ensure that information was up to date and accurate at the time of printing. However, we advise users of the guide to contact agencies directly to confirm addresses, program and service information and organizational policies with respect to people with less than full immigration status. Many organizations are also flexible in terms of what documents (such as ID) are required from individuals, and will be able to provide you with the most accurate information. Some agencies may also have another service location that is in, or close to, your neighbourhood.
