The City of Toronto opens its four Warming Centres when an Extreme Cold Weather Alert is issued by the City’s Medical Officer of Health. Warming Centers give those who are vulnerable and may be experiencing homelessness a safe, warm indoor place to rest and access snacks, washroom facilities and referrals to emergency shelter.
Warming Centres are being offered this year as part of the City’s 2021/2022 Winter Services Plan for those experiencing homelessness. All services at Warming Centres will be delivered following ongoing public health recommendations regarding COVID-19 protocols to ensure the safety of those using the centres. The images and video available here are representative of what the City’s Warming Centres look like; the exact set up may vary by centre.
