The City of Toronto has cancelled the extreme cold weather alert that was issued on Sunday, February 10. Extreme cold weather alerts activate additional support services to help get homeless people in from the cold.

An alert goes into effect when Environment Canada:
  • predicts a temperature of -15 degrees Celsius or lower, without wind chill,
  • issues a wind chill warning for outdoor activity for people in the Toronto area, and/or
  • predicts extreme weather conditions, such as a blizzard or ice storm.
