Toronto Public Health and its community partners work together to reduce the risks of heat-related illness due to extreme heat. Here are some additional resources about the health effects of heat and how to keep yourself, clients and loved ones safe.

Toronto Public Health has developed heat vulnerability maps to capture the geographic patterns of heat vulnerability in the City. These maps are intended to support community agencies in hot weather planning/response and are best used in combination with the current knowledge of your agency’s service areas and the outreach conducted.

Community agencies serving vulnerable people may consider establishing a heat registry program. The City of Toronto has some guidance available for agencies wishing to set up such a program.

Data available on the number of Heat Warnings and Extended Heat Warnings from 2001 to 2018.
