Expanded Heat Relief Network

As of summer 2019, rather than providing a separate service of seven Cooling Centres operated by the City, residents are able to access cool spaces through the Heat Relief Network.

If you do not have access to air conditioning, cool down by visiting one of 300+ locations throughout the city. Participating organizations include community centres, libraries, civic centres, YMCA centres and some mall locations. You can also consider visiting one of the City’s pools, which may have extended hours depending on weather conditions.

Spending time in a cooler environment during extremely hot weather lowers the core body temperature and helps to protect against heat-related illness.

The City is continually working with local organizations to expand this network.

Additionally, access to cooling for people who are experiencing homelessness will be integrated into pre-existing services that already serve vulnerable populations such as shelters, drop-ins and respite centres. Visit for more information.
