Extreme Cold Weather Response: A Homelessness Centered Plan for Keeping Winnipeggers Safe in Winter

The Extreme Cold Weather Response Plan provides cold weather preparedness, response information, and activities focused on reducing the negative health impacts of extreme cold weather conditions. The main objectives during extreme cold are to:

• Alert those experiencing homelessness and other vulnerable populations that extreme cold weather conditions are either expected or currently exist;

• Enable those experiencing homelessness and other vulnerable populations to take appropriate precautions; and

• Trigger response actions by agencies that provide services or alter operations to protect those experiencing homelessness and other vulnerable populations from extremely cold weather.

The Plan includes a focus on preventing direct impacts of extreme cold weather on people experiencing homelessness and other vulnerable populations. Download the Plan here:
