Heat stress

Year after year, summer temperatures have hit record highs putting great strains on Toronto’s energy networks to provide power to cooling systems. Many of the newcomer communities and local Torontonians who do not have the resources to combat the heat migrate to cooler public commercial spaces. This provides opportunities for cultural communities to come together but it also creates conflicts between newcomer communities and those who think they pose a strain on the system.
