Community Conversations

The EYET Community Conversation seeks to bring housing professionals and service providers across the sector together to engage, to collaborate, build community, and to share skills and strategies for facing the unique challenges that this pandemic has presented. 

These Community Conversations focus on specific, relevant, and timely housing and homelessness related topics, and invite housing professionals, managers, administrators, and service users together to work collaboratively on identifying needs, discussing strategies for meeting those needs, and sharing skills and ideas that have worked well. 

Our Community Conversations are solutions-oriented, and facilitated by EYET staff and guest presenters. The ideas shared in our working groups are captured and compiled in this space for the benefit of the sector. Check the materials and resources that we have made available under each Community Conversation topic, shared by housing professionals from across Toronto.

All EYET staff will continue to wear a proper-fitting non-medical mask at all times, save and except when staff are on their scheduled breaks.

Screening for Symptoms

We want to remind you that parents/caregivers and/or their child(ren) cannot attend an EarlyON Child and Family Centre if they are ill.

While COVID-19 screening will no longer be documented, all individuals, including children attending programs, staff, parents/guardians, and visitors will still be required to complete a self-screening tool each day, before arrival at a centre.

A screening tool can be downloaded by clicking here so you can use it at home and prior to arriving at the centre.

Each member of your family who plans on attending outdoor programming must pre-register; this includes parents/caregivers and infants. The names on the registration must match the names of the individuals who are attending the program. To ensure that everyone can join us, you must pre-register for each program on each day of the offer. Families must complete a COVID-19 screening.  For the check-in station to move quickly, we ask that you the ticket on your mobile device, if possible.
