Heat relief

Residents are invited to cool off and access clean drinking water in our leisure centres and libraries during regular operating hours, particularly during extreme heat events. Our indoor pools and outdoor aquatic facilities, such as spray padswading pools, and heated and non-heated pools are also great ways to cool down during the warm summer months.

In addition, the following community centres are available as cooling spaces this summer during select hours. Please contact the community centres for applicable hours.

Hydration stations

In 2022 and 2023, we installed three hydration stations as part of a pilot project to provide clean drinking water for residents during the summer season.

Locations were selected based on need and feedback from community partners, with a particular focus on vulnerable and unsheltered Winnipeggers that are more at risk of heat-related illnesses.

For 2024, the initiative has been expanded to include eight hydration stations, at the following locations:

  • 470 Selkirk Ave. (The Bell Tower)
  • 185 Young St. (Broadway Neighbourhood Centre)
  • Southwest corner of Stella Avenue and Main Street (near Mount Carmel Clinic)
  • Northeast corner of Princess Street and Henry Avenue (near Siloam Mission)
  • Southeast corner of Roslyn Road and Osborne Street
  • 369 Furby St. (near Agape Table)
  • Southeast corner of Maryland Street and Ellice Avenue (near Spence Neighbourhood Association)
  • 190 Disraeli Freeway (near N’Dinawemak)
