For any Niagara Falls residents seeking shelter from the cold, minus-15C is the number that unlocks the doors. If you throw in the wind chill, that number turns into minus-20C.

The city has just opened two warming centres and will provide transportation to them.

The two warming centres are:

  • Coronation Centre (5925 Summer Street) noon to 5 pm.
  • Niagara Falls Public Library Victoria Avenue Branch (4848 Victoria Avenue)

Said the city, “Niagara Falls Transit offers free bus rides to the warming centres listed above on days the temperatures are forecasted to reach -15°C (5°F) or colder, or when wind chills are forecasted to drop to or below -20°C.”

The city also expressed appreciation with the ongoing cooperation of the Start Me Up Niagara, the Niagara Falls Public Library, and Niagara Region “in supporting those who are vulnerable and may be experiencing homelessness by providing a safe, warm indoor place to rest and access amenities.”
