The city is asking people to seek shelter and check on others amid the frigid temperatures.
“Extreme Cold Weather Alerts” are issued when the temperature is forecasted to reach -15°C or colder, or when the wind chill is forecasted to reach -20°C or colder.
This is the fifth day in a row Toronto has been faced with the alert.
Given the forecast heading into Tuesday, it doesn’t look like the city will be lifting it in a hurry.
