Warming Centres


Each winter, London experiences periods of extreme cold. The Middlesex-London Health Unit issues cold alerts when any of the following conditions are met:

  • Predicted low temperature of –15° C without wind chill.
  • The wind chill reaches the level at which Environment Canada issues a warning for outdoor activity for people in the Middlesex-London area.
  • Extreme weather conditions, such as a blizzard or ice storm.

When a cold alert is issued, the City of London will initiate our extreme temperature protocol and open community centres to service as warming centres for those who require refuge from the cold.

Hours and locations of warming centres will be updated here when a cold alert is issued.

Please note that no special programming is provided and the hours could vary.
