It's cold out there. The Coldest Night of the Year is a covid-safe, family-friendly walk to raise money for charities serving people experiencing homelessness, hurt, and hunger. Walk with us (virtually) on February 20, 2021 – there’s a place for everyone!

About The Dam

When Eddy ended up on the streets of Toronto 25 years ago, there wasn’t a Dam for him to get the help when he needed it most. The worst part about being homeless is not just wondering where you’ll sleep at night, but also the instability and chaos that it causes in everyday life. Since 1995, the Dam has been creating a sense of belonging, community and more importantly a sense of home, not just for youth like Eddy, but for all youth coming of age in this overwhelming digital age.


Our Mission is partnering with Mississauga’s youth to create an inclusive community where all are welcomed, valued and respected. Our Vision is a community of youth empowered by discovering their worth, enabling them to grow and thrive in our community.


Walk with us on Feb 20 to support the youth of Mississauga.

Virtual CNOY Day

This is your own self-organized micro-walk! Virtual CNOY Day should feel pretty familiar once you get walking - here are some key things you'll need to do on February 20 (or whatever day in February you decide to walk):

  • Gather with your covid-safe bubble (or on your own)
  • Map out a safe 2-5 km route
  • Let someone know where you are
  • Bring a cell phone in case of emergency
  • Share online as you go! #cnoy21
  • Keep fundraising (half of all fundraising happens in the last week!)
  • Be safe and have fun!
