To help keep our residents cool and safe when the weather gets too hot, the City of Burlington is expanding the number of cooling centres available during heat warnings.
When a heat warning is issued by Halton Region, residents can stay cool at all open Burlington Public Library branches.
On extreme heat days, pets may come inside with their owners to cool off too.
Heat warnings are issued by the Region of Halton when temperatures are expected to be at least 31 C and overnight temperatures are above 20 C for at least 3 days or the humidex is at least 40 C for at least 2 days.
