Extreme Cold Weather Response: A Homelessness Centered Plan for Keeping Winnipeggers Safe in Winter provides information on preventing, recognizing and responding to cold illness. The plan also includes warming resources to help Winnipeggers remain safe during Manitoba’s winter weather.
The Plan includes a focus on preventing direct impacts of extreme cold weather for people experiencing homelessness. Those who experience homelessness may be particularly vulnerable to exposure during cold weather.
Stakeholders and partners including the City of Winnipeg, emergency shelters, outreach workers and health services support the Extreme Cold Weather Response Plan in different ways. A key priority for all is collaborating to support people finding shelter from extreme cold and preventing cold-related injury.
