Toronto Heat Emergency Trigger Project

Categorized Under: Climate



Building on the City of Toronto, Ontario's Hot Weather Response Plan, ICF International worked with the City of Toronto to develop a "trigger" to identify when an extended heat emergency should be declared. The aim was to facilitate a more robust communitywide response commensurate with the level of risk of deep and prolonged heat waves.

This project provided organizations responsible for raising public awareness and preserving public health with a greater ability to understand, prepare, and adapt to climate change-induced heat emergencies to minimize heat-related illness and premature mortality anticipated with severe heat waves.
