Air Conditioned Public Places & Cooling Centres

This dataset is no longer being maintained and will be replaced in the near future to reflect the Heat Relief Network

Toronto Public Health monitors the Heat Health Alert System every day from May 15 to September 30 each year, to alert those people most at risk of heat-related illness that hot weather conditions presently exist and to take appropriate precautions. One such precaution is the availability of buildings that are open to the general public that offer an air-conditioned space for temporary relief from the extreme heat.
