New Registry For the Deaths of People Who Are Homeless

TDIN members, along with many organizations and the City of Toronto, are concerned because, to-date, the deaths of people in Toronto who are homeless have not been accurately reported, investigated or acted upon. As a result, starting January 1, 2017, the City of Toronto will be officially tracking the deaths of people who are homeless. Toronto Public Health has created an on-line form for this purpose. Submissions will then be checked with the Coroner’s Office. TDIN has created a summary document of information provided by Toronto Public Health, which you can download using the link below. 

 How to report the death of a person who is homeless in Toronto:

  1. Confirm the person is homeless by reviewing the definition below (without permanent suitable housing)
  2. Go to the website https://tph.fluidsurveys.com/s/homelessdeathreport/ and enter password TPHHD2017 (all capitals).
  3. Fill in the information requested. Please go over the questions with whomever is reporting the death. Be as detailed as possible.
  4. All information will be kept confidential. Provide as much identifying information as you can, and don’t worry about duplicate reports about the same person.
