The city has issued an extreme cold weather alert and is boosting services for the homeless as officials do their best to convince some of Toronto’s most vulnerable people to seek shelter.

Residents are also being asked to call 311 if they see a homeless person they think is at risk and needs help.

While the alert is in effect Toronto is adding shelter spaces to accommodate more people who want to escape the cold.

And overnight, street out-reach workers will be moving around the downtown core and urging the homeless to go to a shelter.

Extreme cold weather alerts are usually issued when Environment Canada predicts an overnight temperature of -15 C or colder – without the wind chill.
