Emergency Daytime Warming Centre Update
Council approved a recommendation to have the warming centre run daily through to March 31, 2023 regardless of the daily temperatures. Daily operation of the city’s temporary daytime warming centre, regardless of the temperature will align with the nightly operations of the Mount Olive Church cold weather shelter which will provide consistency for those experiencing homelessness during the winter 2022/2023 period.
