While the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory, tenants are strongly encouraged to get vaccinated. Toronto Community Housing Corporation (TCHC) will follow the city's direction requiring mandatory COVID-19 vaccinations for all TCHC employees by October 30, 2021. You can read more about TCHC's decision requiring all staff to get the COVID-19 vaccine under the 'What's New' heading on the homepage.

Need help getting to a vaccination clinic?
As of April 28, the City is piloting transportation services for residents 55 years of age or over who are unable to access or afford existing transportation options to get to their vaccination appointments, people with disabilities, and others who are frail or have underlying conditions which put them at greater risk from COVID-19 or render them unable to safely access other modes of transportation.
This program is intended for those who have no other options for transportation to vaccination appointments.
