Here’s where to cool down during the heat wave in Montreal

“If you are in an overheated location, look for a cool place, such as a water fountain with splash pad, a cooling station or an air-conditioned facility like a public building.”

Mayor Valérie Plante has shared a link to a Montreal map indicating where Montrealers can find accessible, public places with air conditioning, water games, swimming pools, beaches and other places to stay cool during the ongoing heat wave.

When temperatures surpass 30, it’s important to stay in a cool place if possible. Otherwise, be sure to monitor yourself and your loved ones for signs of heat illness, stay hydrated (drink water even before you’re thirsty), limit physical activity and protect your skin from the sun.
