Increasingly high summer temperatures have an impact on the health of all, especially the poor and elderly. This Wellesely Institute backgrounder provides a three-point “Cool Toronto” plan to bring down the temperature in an over-heated city.
We wish to acknowledge this land on which the Wellesley Institute operates. For thousands of years it has been the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and the Mississaugas of the Credit. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.
