Much of southern Ontario is under a heat warning as a two-day heat event is expected this weekend.
Maximum temperatures are expected to reach or surpass 30 C and hit the low forties when combined with humidity.
The weather agency says minimum temperatures in the low to mid-twenties are expected, bringing little relief from the heat.
Cooler temperatures are forecast for Monday.
Residents are advised to drink plenty of water even before feeling thirsty, to stay in a cool place and check on older family, friends and neighbours to ensure they are staying hydrated and cool.
