Climate & Emergency Resilience

Why do we need to prepared?

Marginalized communities are the first to feel the impacts of local and global emergencies. In recent years, St. James Town has suffered from a number of building-wide emergencies and evacuations, and the neighbourhood consistently faced the highest COVID-19 case count in Toronto’s downtown core. By collaborating with organizations in the neighbourhood, the Co-op aims to ensure St. James Town has a safe response plan for future pandemics, extreme weather, black outs, and other global and community crises.

OASIS Cool Spot

We have been setting up our Cool Spot during extreme heat to provide some respite to houseless people and those living without temprature controls in their homes. It currently consistes of tents to provide shade, water, and a misting station.
