About the Event

Join us on February 25, 2023!

The Coldest Night of the Year is a winterrific family-friendly walk to raise money for local charities serving people experiencing hurt, hunger, and homelessness. Team up, fundraise, walk, and gather for good... because it’s cold out there.


CNOY is a moment each year when tens of thousands of Canadians step outside the warmth and comfort of home to shine a light of welcome and compassion in their communities. Remarkably, the Coldest Night of the Year has raised over $56,000,000 in 166 communities across Canada since it began in 2011. Learn more about our history.

CNOY Toques

Our thanks for a fundraising job well done!

When you go the extra mile and fundraise ($150 for adults, $75 for youth under 17 or under) we'll celebrate your efforts with an oh-so-comfy 2023 CNOY Toque.


Emergency Preparedness

Your safety is no joke.

If the past few years have taught us anything, it’s that things can change quickly! Operational challenges and covid-related health risks may not permit us to assemble in large groups as planned. If provincial, municipal, or local restrictions take effect, we'll be ready to adjust – we will communicate with you directly and help you gather safely.
