The City of Timmins would like to advise that the extreme cold weather alert issued yesterday remains in effect, with temperatures remaining below -25 Celsius (inclusive of windchill).

Living Space will continue to operate 24/7, accommodating 25 people in the existing emergency shelter. Overflow beds are also available at the Timmins Native Friendship Centre between 9 p.m. and 7 a.m. daily, with the ability to accommodate an additional 50 people.

People in need of emergency shelter are asked to attend the Living Space location (27 Cedar St. N.), at which time staff will assess and refer the individual to the most appropriate shelter location.

Living Space Outreach Workers will conduct street-level outreach with the goal of connecting people who are sleeping outside with shelter and/or support.
