City of Toronto launches new Human Services website

The City of Toronto's Children's Services, Employment & Social Services and Shelter, Support & Housing Administration divisions have joined forces to launch an integrated website that enables Toronto residents to access information about services and subsidies in one place.

The new Human Services website organizes information by topic, eliminating the need for residents to navigate for information in various areas of the City's website.

Visitors to toronto.ca/humanservices can find information about assistance with child care fees, employment services, as well as financial and housing support, all in one place.

The new website includes a Finder Tool that enables Torontonians to receive a personalized list of benefits, subsidies and services they may qualify for, based on a short questionnaire. The Finder Tool can be accessed at http://www.toronto.ca/humanservices/finder.

In addition to providing information about services and eligibility, the website instructs residents on how to apply for services and subsidies and how to maintain these benefits once they receive them.
