Emergency Childcare Services

During these challenging times we understand that the City of Toronto has been working on setting up emergency childcare services for some health care providers. This service is not provided by the University of Toronto, and we do not have the ability to book or hold spots for our Residents and Fellows, however we can help you navigate the system

Outlined below is the process. From our understanding is there is high demand for these spots and not all who request spots will be accommodated immediately, and there may be a waitlist or delay in receiving a spot.  Thank you for your patience and service during these trying times. Please reach out to us if you have any further questions.
