Toronto to set up two temporary shelters on campuses for refugee claimants

The city will be allowed to set up temporary shelters on the campuses of Centennial College and Humber College to provide accommodations for new refugee claimants arriving in Toronto, but officials say the facilities are likely to be at capacity within 60 to 70 days.

A 400-bed facility at the Centennial College Residence and Conference Centre in Scarborough will be made available to the city tomorrow while another 400-bed facility at Humber College in Etobicoke will be made available on June 1.
