Update as of Thursday, March 19th:

We are open for our regular schedule EXCEPT:

  • The Sanctuary AA Group is not meeting at 25 Charles Street but is going online for now. Scroll to the bottom of this message for instructions on joining the virtual meeting.
  • The Sanctuary Church service, which usually happens on Sunday evenings, has been cancelled due to the government’s mandate that faith services of all religions must be cancelled no matter what size.

We will continue to post these updates as we need to. These updates will also include if any other activities are affected, shut down OR even re-opened. Thank you for your patience with us during this time. We thank you too for caring for your friends, family and loved ones during this time.


We at Sanctuary take the current health situation of the COVID-19 pandemic seriously. During this difficult time, we are committed to keeping our friends safe while keeping us all in community for as long as possible. For now, we are staying open!

To keep people safe, we will be screening everyone at the door as you come into the building – taking peoples’ temperatures and encouraging self-quarantine if you have left the country or been in a community-transmission part of Canada within the last 14 days.

We will only be allowing 42 people into the building at any time. This will mean increased wait times outside. Please be prepared for this. We will do our best to free up seats as quickly as we are able.

We are going to continue with increased cleaning protocols. Should we have a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19, we will follow the CDC recommendations for cleaning community facilities with suspected/confirmed coronavirus. During this time we will continue receiving donations of all kinds also following a safety protocol with such donations.

Thank you for your help, care and support during this time. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to email us at info@sanctuarytoronto.ca

The Peace of the LORD which passes all understanding be with us now.
