About Haven on the Queensway

Haven on the Queensway is a nonprofit charitable organization providing humanitarian relief to people in our community by meeting their physical, emotional and spiritual needs. We offer an atmosphere of respect, dignity, and security as we help people on their way to becoming more self-sufficient.


Over 1 million people visited food banks in the Toronto region in 2022. Between inflation, job losses, rent and mortgage payments, child-rearing costs, and more, budgeting enough money for food has become difficult for many.


At Haven on the Queensway, we serve over 200 families weekly, 1000+ individuals, and the numbers are growing. Especially during COVID, we have seen an increase in families accessing our Food Bank, including seniors, families, children, youth, and those struggling with homelessness and hunger. Countless new families registered have recently lost their jobs.


For those in Etobicoke, the hope of receiving help starts with CNOY 2023!


Please give!
