Cooling centres


While Ontario’s public health units have a role to play in informing and educating people about extreme heat, in Oxford County, cooling stations are managed by each city, town or township. Check your local municipal office website for updates during periods of extreme heat.

Remember, local facilities like libraries, shopping malls, senior centres and arenas are usually air conditioned and open to the public if you need a break from the heat.
