+ Do you have any vacancies?
We do not have any vacancies, there is a waiting list based on a person’s application date.
+ How long will I wait before I’m offered an apartment?
Unfortunately, so many different factors affect our vacancy rate that it is impossible to accurately predict how long a new applicant will wait for an available unit. At times we will offer an estimated waiting time, but we cannot guarantee how long or short a person’s wait will be.
As there are fewer Studio and One-bedroom suites in our building, the wait for these units is much longer than for Bachelor apartments.
+ Do you accommodate emergency placements?
We are not able to offer emergency placements and do not expedite applications based on personal circumstances.
If you are in a situation where you require emergency shelter, please call the City of Toronto Central Intake at 416-338-4766.
Alternately, your local Housing Help Centre can help you access other housing options, find and keep housing, and avoid eviction.
+ How many people are ahead of me on the waiting list?
You will not be told your position on the waiting list as it will vary based on several factors. For example, other applicants may move their names from one list (e.g., size of unit) to another. Applications may be put on hold, reactivated, or current Residents may request internal transfers. In addition, vacancies may be filled from the centralized waiting list for subsidized housing in Toronto rather than our own waiting list.
+ What about parking?
Residents who own a vehicle pay a $30.00 per month parking fee and have a reserved, outdoor parking space.
There is ample visitor’s parking.
+ What about cable and internet?
Residents are responsible for arranging their own phone, cable, and internet services. Residents can choose whichever service provider they prefer.
+ Is there air conditioning?
The main floor of St. David’s Village is centrally air conditioned. The upper floors and apartments are not air conditioned, but Residents are permitted to use window or portable air conditioners. (For safety reasons, portable air conditioners are preferred.)
+ Are meals available?
No, meals are not available. Residents prepare their own meals, although some arrange to receive meals through Meals on Wheels or Heart to Home.
+ Is housekeeping available?
No, Residents are responsible for their own cleaning and laundry.
+ Are personal care or supports available?

+ Can I have visitors?
St. David’s Village is like any other apartment building—you are free to have visitors and overnight guests come and go as you wish.
+ Can I bring my pet?
Pets are welcome at St. David’s Village. If you decide to keep a pet you are responsible for your pet, what your pet does, and the effect your pet has on other Residents. Dogs must be leashed while in the hallways or lobby and are not permitted in our other shared spaces.
+ Can I smoke?
St. David’s is transitioning into a Smoke-Free building. Smoking is not permitted in communal spaces and new tenants must agree to our Smoke-Free policy. Most apartments are smoke-free, although there are some grandfathered units where smoking is permitted.
+ Are you close to public transit?
TTC bus #16 passes right in front of the building, running south to Warden Subway Station and North to Scarborough Town Centre.
+ Are there stores and other amenities nearby?
Within walking distance there is a No Frills Grocery Store and Shopper’s Drug Mart, as well as a number of smaller shops and banks.
Scarborough General Hospital is just north of us at Lawrence Avenue.
