Three of our four buildings are repurposed surplus buildings: a hotel, a church and a medical office building.

St. Clare’s has contributed to neighbourhood diversification by locating affordable housing in four of Toronto’s downtown communities.

St. Clare’s is one of Canada's largest private non-profit developers of new supportive and affordable housing built during the past 20 years.

St. Clare's has developed 383 units of new, affordable housing in Toronto.

St. Clare’s is a charitable organization that provides affordable mixed-income housing in downtown Toronto. Our tenants represent a cross-section of Toronto’s diversity, most tenants pay a rent-geared-to-their-income; others pay the market rent for their apartments.

St. Clare’s takes great pride in creating safe inclusive communities in our buildings, click HERE to see how we do it.


St. Clare’s has a pragmatic approach to addressing homelessness and the lack of affordable housing in Toronto. We build and rent self-contained apartments – from bachelors to four-bedrooms – which are subject to the Residential Tenancies Act. Our buildings are safe, inclusive communities that provide a range of amenities and are accessible to all tenants.

Our Model is built on:

  • Partnership
  • On-site Co-ordination
  • Operations
  • Healthy Communities
  • What doesn’t work

St. Clare’s model has been adopted by other affordable housing providers and publicized by CMHC.
