Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Toronto and the province are under lockdown restrictions until at least February 10, 2021. Strides Toronto is therefore delivering services primarily by telephone and online. Residential services remain in in-person operation and other in-person services are available by appointment only on a case-by-case basis.
We continue to accept new requests for service. All staff and clients entering Strides Toronto locations must answer NO to all of the questions in this COVID-19 Self-Assessment.
The health and safety of our clients and staff is very important to us. We have taken a number of precautions and implemented processes to prevent the spread of the coronavirus at our locations. This video explains what you can expect when you come in to Strides Toronto for service.
If you are a client looking for information, counselling services or if you are looking for resources, please call 416-438-3697 ext 19055 and speak to the Intake Worker or leave a message and the Intake worker will return your call.
If you are an existing client, please call the same number to reach your current service provider.
