Severe Summer Weather

Learn to be safe

To better enjoy outdoor activities and to be able to protect yourself, you should keep abreast of the latest weather reports and warnings in effect issued by Environment Canada. Various tools also provide access to this information at any time, anywhere, even along your route.

The weather forecast and warnings from Environment Canada are available 24/7 on its weather website, where you can subscribe to the RSS service. In addition to being available from the local media, local weather conditions may be obtained using a hotline for recorded information in your area. You can also be in touch with an Environment Canada expert seven days a week at the weather consultation service Weather One-on-One: 1-900-565-5555 (charges apply).

The Weatheradio Canada network broadcasts continuous weather reports on seven VHF frequencies at 162 MHz. The signal can be picked up by Weatheradio receivers, which are available for purchase from several retailers in Canada. At selected locations, low power broadcasts are transmitted on the regular FM or AM band. A Weatheradio receiver is not required to hear these broadcasts. For more information on Weatheradio, visit:
