About the Event

Join us on February 26, 2022!

The Coldest Night of the Year is a family-friendly fundraising walk held on February 26, 2022 that supports local charity partners who provide essential care and service for people experiencing homelessness, hunger, and other related vulnerabilities.


CNOY is a moment each year when tens of thousands of Canadians step outside the warmth and comfort of home and shine a light of welcome and compassion in their communities. Remarkably, the Coldest Night of the Year has raised $43,500,000 in 149 communities across Canada since it began in 2011. Learn more about our history.

Our thank you for a fundraising job well done!

COVID Concerns

Your safety is no joke

If the past year has taught us anything, it’s that things can change quickly. Covid-related health risks and operational challenges may not permit us to assemble in large groups as planned. If provincial, municipal or district laws/guidelines restrict us we'll be ready to adjust quickly, communicate to you directly and help you gather safely in smaller, covid-friendly teams or walking individually.
